ResEc 000.5: Intro to SAS II. SAS Windows Environment: 1. Start SAS – under Programs in the Start menu. 2. SAS Windows Environment: Explorer; Results (a Table of Contents for output). Editor (for Programs); Log (tells what did and did not work); and Output (presents results from PROC statements). 3. SAS commands – learn to create your own programs. 4. ViewTable – use Excel, or Access, or … to create data sets. You can use ViewTable to look through data sets in SAS once you’ve created them. 5. Saving SAS data sets. By default, all data sets in SAS are saved in a “library” called WORK. It’s basically scratch space – everything is erased at the end of the session. To save a permanent SAS data set, create a SAS library: Exit to Windows Explorer and create a folder in your name. Return to SAS and go to the SAS Explorer window. Right click on Libraries and choose “New.” Give your library a name (I usually choose a name that fits my courses or research); leave Engine as “Default;” then Browse to find the folder location. Click OK and the library will be created. Check by opening the Libraries in SAS
