SAS University Edition (SUE) is a fully functional version of SAS software that includes these components: SAS Studio, Base SAS, SAS/STAT, SAS/IML, and SAS/ACCESS. (These modules are sufficient for performing most of the examples in this book. Exceptions are indicated in the following section named “Limitations.”) Although the interface is different from a locally installed version, the program provides the same analytics software provided by the standard SAS version. In addition, the SUE will run on a PC (Windows), Mac, or Linux workstation. The key difference is that in order to run the SUE version, you must have an active Internet connection. When you submit (run) a SAS program using SUE, the code is sent to a server (via the Internet) and the code is processed there and returned to your workstation.
This appendix shows how you can use SUE to run the examples in SAS Essentials. The main differences are in the user interface and how you access files. This brief information tells you how to access files for SAS Essentials in the SUE.
Follow the instructions provided by SAS to install the SUE. It differs according to the type of computer you are using. Here is a summary of the instructions (for installation on Windows).
