The answers are not new, but we have organized them into a central KNOWLEDGE BASE. Here system requirements, installation and administration instructions, and product documentation are just keystrokes away. Discover our new central repository for technical papers contributed by SAS Technical Support, Research and Development, and SAS customers.

Find the most significant changes in the Samples & SAS Notes section of the KNOWLEDGE BASE. We combined content from our problem and usage notes collection with samples and frequently asked questions into a unified database. A new topic based browse hierarchy guides you to the content you are interested in. Enhancements to the search capabilities enable filtering of search results so you can limit results to content specifically applies the product, product release, and content types you are interested in. Check out the new search and browse capabilities.

Also in the KNOWLEDGE BASE find Focus Areas (the content formerly known as Communities). R&D staff develop content focus areas to highlight new features and usage tips. Focus areas include the SAS Output Delivery System (ODS), Data Visualization, Statistics and Operations Research. Be sure to check out the overhauled Base SAS focus area.

Development of the KNOWLEDGE BASE was based on the comments and suggestions we have received from you in the past. We thank you for that feedback and look forward to hearing what you have to say about this new website feature.
