Understanding the basic concepts of character encoding is necessary for creating, manipulating, and rendering any kind of character data. Whenever data is brought into SAS from various external sources; whenever it is transferred between SAS applications running different locales or across the network via thin clients; and when output is written to external files, SAS data sets, printers, or Web pages, an encoding is involved. In each of these cases something can go wrong. It is the user's responsibility to ensure that the data is stored, processed, and rendered in the correct encoding. Manfred Kiefer's SAS Encoding: Understanding the Details explains the basic concepts of characters, encodings, glyphs, and fonts and gives practical examples for how to troubleshoot encoding problems.

Addressed to the beginner as well as to the advanced SAS user, SAS Encoding: Understanding the Details helps solve readers' encoding problems. It provides background information on encodings, shows how they are used with SAS software, and explains typical problems and ways to sort those out. It also presents examples on how to set up SAS software in an international environment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good buy to understand encoding July 30 2012

Format:Perfect Paperback
This book is really helping me to understand NLS (National language Support) in SAS; how it work now, and where it comes from.
The introduction about the glyphs, characters, encoding, and other cultural characteristics, is maybe the part I liked the most, because it gave me some background info I was lacking.
In other sections, there is a clear emphasis on SAS usage : how encoding work in the different versions of SAS, troubleshooting tips, references, etc. (The book already helped me last week to solve a very specific encoding problem ). I like the last words of the author about the fact information stored on clay is still readable, while data stored on a modern tablet will be inaccessible in a few years.
