VIEWS News 68 (2022Q2) has been published!

Total views 151 

VIEWS News issue 68 has now been published. I know it should have been published in May, but, as I was on vacation at the end of May, and Q2 doesn’t end until the end of June, I think I’m still on target!  😉

It is glorious summer, although you might not find all Brits celebrating the warmer weather! This newsletter issue includes another useful SAS programming tip from Nina L Werner (see issue 43 for her first tip), and some extracts from my SAS conference papers about Enterprise Guide and unique keys. As usual I have publicised some SAS related events for the next few months, and I have also added some more SAS formats, options and functions that you may or may not have come across before, but you might find interesting, and even useful.

If you would like to contribute an article, to re-visit and improve an existing article, or just discuss the possibility of doing so, please feel free to send an email to me at view-uk@hollandnumerics.org.uk or phil@hollandnumerics.org.uk.

To be able to read this and all previous issues you will need to follow these steps:

  1. If you have not already registered on this blog site, go to blog.hollandnumerics.org.uk and register for free membership.
  2. Once successfully registered, click the menu item [Subscriptions for Forums and Features] > [Request access to the VIEWS UK forum] to request free access to the VIEWS UK forum, then add your name and email address to the form before clicking [Send].
  3. On receipt of a request for an existing blog member I will register them for free access to the VIEWS UK forum, and then send them an email to confirm this.
  4. The next time they log onto the blog site they will see VIEWS UK in the forum list, where you will find the latest issue of VIEWS News, forum topics to find the backissues, functions and formats in every published issue, and a tag cloud covering every forum on the site to which you have access, including VIEWS UK and the VIEWS News issues.
  5. They will also be automatically informed of any VIEWS UK updates.

Enjoy!……………..Phil
