SQL SAS introduction

PROC SQL is a dynamic procedure that merges the functionalities of Data and PROC steps into one cohesive process. It enables users to efficiently sort, summarize, subset, join (merge), and concatenate datasets. Additionally, it facilitates the creation of new variables and the direct output of results, or the seamless creation of new tables or views, all in a single streamlined step.

Syntax:

PROC SQL;
SELECT
FROM
WHERE
GROUP BY
HAVING
