Overview

Art Carpenter demystifies the powerful REPORT procedure and shows you how to incorporate this highly flexible and customizable procedure into your SAS reporting programs. Combining his years of SAS experience with a talent for instruction, Art offers clear and comprehensive coverage that demonstrates how valuable this procedure is for both summarizing and displaying data. Illustrated with more than two hundred examples and sample exercises to reinforce your learning, Carpenter's Complete Guide to the SAS REPORT Procedure provides you with information that you can put to immediate use.

The text is divided into three distinct sections. Part 1 introduces you to PROC REPORT, showing you how it works and "thinks." This section is designed to be read linearly by users who are unfamiliar with the procedure. Part 2 is a collection of increasingly more complex examples that feature advanced options and capabilities. It also introduces the relationship between PROC REPORT and the Output Delivery System (ODS). Part 3 incorporates the options and statements described in Parts 1 and 2 into a series of examples that highlight many of the extended capabilities of PROC REPORT. Included in this section is a discussion of a few ODS statements and options that might be useful to a PROC REPORT programmer, plus an in-depth look at the PROC REPORT process itself, especially as it relates to the execution of compute blocks.

Art's author page at support.sas.com/carpenter includes the following bonus material: example SAS data sets, example results, and a compilation of nearly 100 related conference papers.
