Erika, we had the SAS Institute Education staff come onsite here at SAS
Mecca to teach a version of that class. In our customized version, they
spent a day on PROC REPORT and a day on PROC TABULATE. The SAS
Education instructors did an excellent job, and our students were very
pleased with the classes. We have made this class a part of our annual
training regimen. So, I am thinking that you are making a good
investment in your SAS education!
Erika, best of luck in all of your SAS endeavors!
