SAS is a powerful and versatile language for data manipulation, and the ability to implement SQL within SAS creates additional levels of usefulness and flexibility. Not only does PROC SQL often use fewer and shorter statements than built-in SAS procedures, it also often improves the efficiency of the code.
This course provides students with general knowledge of the SQL procedure using SAS software as a database language and the practical skills needed to become proficient using PROC SQL as a programming language. Students will put their newly acquired PROC SQL skills to use in real-world, hands-on programming projects.
