Proc Migrate: How to Migrate Your Data and Know You've Done It Right! by
Diane Olson of SAS Institute
Now that SAS 9.1 is available, what needs to be done to your data
libraries in order to make use of the new version? Do you have to migrate
your data? If you do, how can you do it most easily? Migrating your data
to a new version of SAS presents challenges; depending on the attributes
of your data libraries, your migration can be relatively simple or
complex. Some issues to consider when adopting SAS 9 include the version
of SAS in which your data currently resides, what member types exist in
your libraries and whether you must move members from 32-bit libraries to
64-bit libraries. To address these issues, SAS 9.1 includes a new utility
procedure, Proc Migrate. Proc Migrate streamlines the process of moving
libraries forward to a new release. This presentation introduces Proc
Migrate and discusses pitfalls of migrating with the traditional methods -
Proc Copy, Proc Cport/Proc Cimport and Proc Catalog. Base SAS also
provides tools that can help you guarantee the content and attributes of
your data after migration. The validation tools are also presented and can
be used to validate the integrity of your migrated libraries.
Making Sense of PROC TABULATE
Jonas V. Bilenas, JP Morgan Chase, Wilmington, DE
The TABULATE procedure in SAS® provides a flexible platform to generate
tabular reports. Many beginning SAS programmers have a difficult time
understanding the syntax of PROC TABULATE and tend to avoid using the
procedure. This tutorial will explain the syntax of PROC TABULATE and,
with examples, show how to grasp the power of PROC TABULATE. The data used
in this paper represents simulated consumer credit card usage data and the
code was developed using SAS 9. This updates the paper presented at NESUG
in 2001 with the same title.
Jonas V. Bilenas, Vice President of Product and Price Optimization at JP
Morgan Chase, develops SAS applications for the consumer credit card
industry, specializing in credit risk management, credit scoring,
forecasting, pricing optimization, reporting, experimental design, and
A SAS user since 1986, he has extensive experience using Base SAS software
and applying the FORMAT, FREQ, and TABULATE procedures and the DATA step.
Jonas holds an M.B.A. in quantitative analysis and is a frequent presenter
at local SAS users group meetings. He is also an active contributor and
speaker at the NorthEast SAS Users Group (NESUG) conference.
