I think Peter Welbrock makes the more valid point that it is time to take
the Tech Support Q&A _page_ out of SAS Communications entirely. It probably
just confuses the intended readers of Comm. (whomever they are).
Observations has been a great source for _real_ coding projects. The online
version, though not quite as palatable as a hard-copy, serves its purpose.
SAS must continue to support Observations to the best of their ability in
I can not give enough kudos on the "Journaling with SCL" series of articles
by Cathy Brinsfield and Jennifer Boyle. Those served as the building blocks
for solid solutions to data management needs in more than one environment
for me. As recently as two weeks ago I needed to build a Dual Data Entry
system, and sure enough, out came the articles.
For new SAS programmers, Observations is a great place to pick up ideas.
That is (hopefully not just "a waste of bandwidth") my $0.02 worth.
