Let me tell you what you will learn. In the import section, you’ll learn how to import different file types (.txt, .csv, .xlsx), In the working with data section you’ll learn how to merge two data sets, filter observations, clean and reduce your data, read dates, create an enumeration variable, and much more. There is a section on Informats/Formats and SAS Input Types (list input, column input, formatted input). In the arrays section, I go into some detail about arrays. As of now, I show you how to use Arrays to recode variables and create new ones. In the Functions section, I cover the Rand function, length/lengthn/lengthc functions, Trim function, compress function, input/put functions, catx function and more!
After this section, you will get an opportunity to test your skills by trying the Integration Assignments.
