Thanks Ken - Good point. I was trying to think of a simple example to introduce the topic of using the hash object . You are correct, disclaimers are appropriate. I will also point to the SAS-L link. --Art Carpenter 18:57, 23 September 2009 (UTC)


Good tip. --Don Henderson 21:19, 1 October 2009 (UTC)


My understanding is that testing is always best;
different sorts prove best in different situations.
