Join Jordan Bakerman for an in-depth discussion in this video SAS libraries and user-defined libraries, part of SAS Programming for R Users, Part 1.
- [Instructor] Now remember, SAS tables are stored…in SAS libraries which are just an organizational tool.…But in SAS we actually have to use a library.…I like to divvy up my projects in different libraries.…So for example, I like to put all…my Bayesian Analysis projects in one library…and then put all my Time Series projects…in another library just to divvy it up…and be a little bit more organized.…And later in this section, I'll show you actually…how to create your own library.…So again, the Work library is a temporary library,…meaning whatever dataset you save…in the Work library is deleted when you close…your SAS session.…
This is actually really convenient when you're creating…intermediary datasets.…So for example, you're reading in lots of datasets at once…and then you go ahead and combine them all…to create one giant stacked dataset.…You probably just want to save that final dataset…and you want to ignore the rest.…If you save them all in the Work library,…they're automatically deleted for you.…Now we've worked with the SAShelp library before…
Note: You can visit the SAS site to obtain a copy of the software, and use the company's online data sets to do the course exercises.
