This course teaches you how to use the IML procedure via the programming language. You will benefit from this course if you plan to use SAS/IML for matrix manipulations or if you plan to use it to implement statistical, econometric, or operations research methods.
Learn how to
 explicitly assign values to a new matrix
 create a matrix from a SAS data set and create a data set from a matrix
 control which rows and columns are read from (or written to) a data set
 use matrix operators and functions in assignment statements
 use IML commands to control the programming environment
 use subscript operators to summarize and subset matrices
 use iterative and conditional processing to control program flow
 write, store, and retrieve IML modules.
Who should attend
SAS programmers, statisticians, econometricians, engineers, or others who manipulate data using matrix operators and matrix algebra
Formats available  Duration   
Classroom: 
2.00 day   

Before attending this course, you should
 have completed the SAS Programming 1: Essentials course or understand the material within
 possess an understanding of elementary matrix algebra or linear algebra concepts and operations, including matrix dimensions, matrix addition and multiplication, matrix inversion, and scalars.
This course addresses SAS IML software.
