ABSTRACT

Beginning SAS® programmers often write much longer code just to avoid using arrays. Arrays have an aura of difficulty, but they are simply misunderstood and underutilized.

This tutorial will introduce you to the basics of SAS Arrays and provide examples of different ways and times to use these data step statements. By utilizing arrays, you can process multiple variables in an efficient manner.

Hopefully, you will feel confident enough when the talk is over to return to your office and put your new knowledge to use.
