Subject: Re: PROC COMPUTAB
I agree with Jack that Proc Computab should belong in the Base Product as it
has nothing to do with Time Series.
I use to use it A LOT when I had SAS/ETS and REALLY enjoyed using it before
Proc Report was ever even dreamed of. Very Powerful tool at that time.
Now, since we do not license SAS/ETS we use Proc Report or pass the data
onto MS EXCEL to that kind of stuff.
If you needed Proc Computab but did not care about Times Series (ETS), then
it would be VERY DIFFICULT to cost justify the purchase of SAS/ETS to get
In my years of posting jobs on SCONSIG.com, I can only remember a couple of
jobs requiring Knowledge of SAS/ETS (no word mentioned about Proc Computab)
and that is probably out of 1000 or so jobs that I have posted over the past
So, I think your paper could possibly fall on deaf ears but do not let me
sway you to not do it. I still like Proc Computab but can not justify the
expense of buying it.
Too bad, it really should be moved to BASE SAS.
My $.025 contribution to your question.
