sasCommunity Tip of the Day

A couple of useful things to do with the current time:

1. Put it at the top and bottom of your program for a quick & easy way of seeing how long a program took to execute.

  %let datetime_start = %sysfunc(TIME()) ;
  %put START TIME: %sysfunc(datetime(),datetime14.);
  ... program code ...
  %put END TIME: %sysfunc(datetime(),datetime14.);
  %put PROCESSING TIME:  %sysfunc(putn(%sysevalf(%sysfunc(TIME())-&datetime_start.),mmss.)) (mm:ss) ;

2. It's also useful to put this in a footnote for output that will be archived.

  footnote2 "%sysfunc(datetime(),datetime14.)";

This is an open invitation to individuals wishing to showcase new ideas they have developed over the last year, especially considering the theme of the PharmaSUG 2018 Conference: Using Tomorrow's Technology.

Presenting a paper at PharmaSUG is a great way to deepen your own technical skills, gain recognition for yourself and your company, and connect with the larger community of statistical programmers, statisticians, data analysts, and researchers in the life sciences. No matter how long you've been in the industry, you've probably learned something that could benefit others. Come and share that learning at PharmaSUG 2018!
