Progress on the sas7bdat

It is tough at times to be a consultant and get those side projects out of the way. That said, I finally had a chance to really work on the sas7bdat some more over the holidays. Not too much since my personal focus is my kids.

A really tough project interfered since the last time I played with it in September so I was looking forward to the holidays to pass another milestone.

Well, I just managed to create a 100 record dataset with 7 variables, char and numeric. My little Christmas gift to myself.

When I first started work on this project many moons back, I never expected that writing a dataset would be much more difficult than reading one. That was a major mistake. However, the writing has made me really discover a lot more about the structure and how it works plus I have had to step up my coding skills a bit to make it through.

Long road but finally happy to be here after so much time.

Happy New Year everyone.
