Thanks replying my question.I known sas programming ,but not in pharma area .I know all the terms,I need what other responsibility for reviewing the CRF's .Can u Please tell me what proc statements should we use for data validation.I thought data validation is to check for data consistency ,check for duplicaate records ,unique key var. I read an artical that IntrNet can used for Edit Check.Can u please explain about edit check.
