Subject: Re: Assistance with comparing VB with SAS/Fr
My team does world wide MIS for a very large company and I've been working
with SAS and VB applications for over 7 years. The best is to take
advantage of both worlds.
We use SAS to data crunch and load summary data into SQL server tables,
using proc dbload. Then my VB programmers go to town on the visualization
I've developed several application using AF and SCL, however there are
more tools and off the self apps for VB then SAS.
Do it with VB, SAS is just not there yet for the PC world when it comes to
building user interactive apps. Also something to think about is
distribution, SAS will require a licenses for each user while VB only for
the developer .
