Efficient Procedures or Guidelines for Testing SAS data?
Posted on 2012-04-02
I am looking for a best, quick, and efficient way to test SAS data (output files, records, counts). I am talking about the process, which is done after all SAS software programs have been written, and everything is already works, as it should.
Everyone test SAS data in their different ways, but I am looking the way that is more efficient and fast as well.
Currently, my SAS data testing includes the following bullets. Please shortly describe what you are doing for these bullets (short sub bullets will work as well).
1. Review Documents
2. Identify Requirements
3. Develop Test Data
4. Values to include in the testing data
5. Simulate command procedure and/ or parent module for testing
6. Test the Program
Note: Please do not refer me to links with testing guidelines, - I probably already read them. I am looking for the way that works for you.
Any comments or suggestions would be very appreciated!
Thank you in advance!
