WHAT DIFFERRENCE DID YOU FIND AMONG VERSION 6 8 AND 9 OF SAS.

Answer Posted / rk

There are lots of changes has been made in the version 9
when we compared with the version 8.
The following are the few:
SAS version 9 supports Formats longer than 8 bytes & is not
possible with version 8.
Length for Numeric format allowed in version 9 is 32 where
as 8 in version 8.
Length for Character names in version 9 is 31 where as in
version 8 is 32.
Length for numeric informat in version 9 is 31, 8 in version
8. Length for character names is 30, 32 in version 8.

3 new informats are available in version 9 to convert
various date, time and datetime forms of data into a SAS
date or SAS time.

· ANYDTDTEW. - Converts to a SAS date value
· ANYDTTMEW. - Converts to a SAS time value.
· ANYDTDTMW. -Converts to a SAS datetime value.

CALL SYMPUTX Macro statement is added in the version 9 which
creates a macro variable at execution time in the data step by
· Trimming trailing blanks
· Automatically converting numeric value to character.

New ODS option (COLUMN OPTION) is included to create a
multiple columns in the output.
