Art Carpenter demystifies the powerful REPORT procedure and shows you how to incorporate this highly flexible and customizable procedure into your SAS reporting programs. Combining his years of SAS experience with a talent for instruction, Art offers clear and comprehensive coverage that demonstrates how valuable this procedure is for both summarizing and displaying data. Illustrated with over two hundred examples and sample exercises to reinforce your learning, this resource provides you with information that you can put to immediate use. The text is divided into three distinct sections. Part 1 introduces you to PROC REPORT, showing you how it works and "thinks." This section is designed to be read linearly by users who are unfamiliar with the procedure. Part 2 is a collection of increasingly more complex examples that highlight advanced options and capabilities. It also introduces the relationship between PROC REPORT and the Output Delivery System (ODS). Part 3 incorporates the options and statements described in Parts 1 and 2 into a series of examples that highlight many of the extended capabilities of PROC REPORT. Included in this section is a discussion of a few ODS statements and options that might be useful to a PROC REPORT programmer, plus an in-depth look at the PROC REPORT process itself, especially as it relates to the execution of compute blocks. Your bonus CD-ROM includes the following: Russ Lavery's Animated Guide to the SAS REPORT Procedure, coauthored by Russ Lavery and Art Carpenter and presented with an audio track and example programs; example SAS code; example SAS data sets; example results; a compilation of nearly 100 related conference papers.
