Susie, et all,
Having known Nat for 20 years, I am most certain that he will stay
most busy, even without performing SAS on a daily basis. I suspect
that even in retirement, he will stay active with VaSUG. The downside
will be that he will no lo9nger have corporate sponsorship to attend
SGF, SESUG and NESUG confernences.

>> I will be retiring at the end of the summer and the guys whom I have been supporting will be left on their own to do their reporting and analysis with Cognos and Minitab. I have checked the archives and while there are a few brief comparisons between SAS and Minitab, I have not been able to find any comparisons such as data handling capabilities of Minitab or such features as by group processing.
