Where can I Find Sample SAS Stored Processes?

Submitted by on 2011-10-20 – 5:00 AM One Comment

If you are just getting started with SAS stored processes, you might find the sample stored processes shipped with the SAS BI tool useful for learning some quick techniques.  Here’s how to access the samples and a trial run.

You can access the samples two ways: Web Browser or SAS Enterprise Guide.  In SAS Enterpise Guide, the Samples are  in a default location.

  1. From the SAS Folders,  navigate to this location: Products > SAS Intelligence Platform > Samples.
  2. Add the stored process that you find interesting.  I used Sample: Multiple Output Formats.
  3. Right-click on stored process icon in the Process Flow.
  4. When prompted, select the desired choices from the window.
  5. Ta-dah!!  The output you selected is generated.  I wanted to see the wonderful CLASS data in HTML format.
Tip! What is really cool is you can also see the code used to create the stored process and work with the prompts.  Click the Modify Stored Process button and all is revealed. Once you can see the code, you can figure out how to create your own masterpiece.
