I've used both. My experience with FOCUS has been that it provides the
means to create simple reports fairly easily against data in a variety
of formats. But, that is about all I saw from it. I never encountered
any statistical or analytical tools. And I found it very, very poor at
data processing. Maybe I missed something, but when I wanted to go
beyond simple reports, FOCUS fell down. On the other hand, SAS has never
let me down.

Anyone out there ever convert a enterprise from FOCUS to SAS users?
On a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being never try it and 10 being well worth the
effort, how would you rate it?
