sasCommunity Tip of the Day

Say that you have SAS/CONNECT software and want to download a _LARGE_ SAS data set from your UNIX server to your Workstation. However, you do not need the entire _LARGE_ SAS data set for your analysis; simply select the observations that contain data for the subset that you are analyzing. You can apply a WHERE statement (or WHERE data set option) to your PROC DOWNLOAD.
