This course is for users who do not have SAS programming experience but need to access, manage, and summarize data from different sources, and present results in reports and graphs. This course focuses on using the menu-driven tasks in SAS Enterprise Guide, the point-and-click interface to SAS, to create queries and reports. It does not address writing SAS code or statistical concepts. This course serves as a prerequisite for the SAS® Enterprise Guide® 2: Advanced Tasks and Querying course and for the Creating Reports and Graphs with SAS® Enterprise Guide® course. It also serves as a prerequisite for the SAS® Enterprise Guide®: ANOVA, Regression, and Logistic Regression course, which teaches statistical concepts using SAS Enterprise Guide.
