Hands-on Exercises

Stage 1:

  1. Create a SAS library for \\bamctxfs\tshome\Prog_I\ named as “IA”. If you could not access the folder, you may use \\TechShare\coba\d\isqs3358\Texts\data-PROG1 instead. Since this is a read-only folder, you can copy the whole folder to your own computer or networked space as long as it is recognized by the Citrix server.
  2. Create a SAS library for another local directory as “My_lib”
  3. Check the drive letter for the .dat file in library IA

 

Stage 2:

  1. P2-28, exercises
  2. P2-49, exercises
  3. P3-13, exercises
  4. Run all SAS programs in Chapter 2. You need to modify the programs with the new path.
  5. Run all SAS programs in Chapter 4. You need to modify the programs with the new path.
