Thanks for David's plug for my papers on PROC MEANS. I have two
available for free download, in PDF Format, from my website,
www.sierrainformation.com The first, Steps to Success with PROC MEANS
is a beginner level tutorial. You can either download just the
presentation or a zip file with the presentation, data sets and SAS
code that you can then use to work on the examples yourself. The
second presentation, Tips & Techniques for PROC MEANS, discusses some
of the more advanced techniques available in PROC MEANS that were added
in Version 8, including the IDGROUP option.
To access these, and other papers, go to www.SierraInformation.com and
then click on "prsentations" in the upper left hand corner of the home
Hope this helps...
