"Is SAS same as SQL?" in SAS Training classes
SAS is pretty different compared to SQL. Some differences are: 1. SQL is a structured query language created to directly access and manipulate data in a data base like Oracle, TERADATA etc. It works only in a DBMS environment. SAS on the other hand is a structured analytic programming language to work directly on data in data bases through drivers for each data base and has the added advantage of working on files in your local system like excel,text etc. 2. SQL cannot be used for analysis but only for data manipulation. While SAS has been built to analyse data and carry out statistical procedures on it other than manipulation. 3. Both have very different strucutee and syntax. However SAS does have a provision for writing SQL queries within SAS programming through a special procedure Hope this answers your question.
