[ RECORDS ][ EXAMPLES ][ OPTIONS] [ OUTPUT_KEYWORDS] [ STATEMENTS ]
The RECORDS procedure is designed to print records from any ASCII, SAS, SASXPORT, SUDAAN, SUDXPORT or SPSS record file. This is particularly useful when you wish to verify that SUDAAN is reading your data properly. You can also use this procedure to obtain a file contents summary or convert an input file of one type to another. For instance, you can convert an ASCII data set to a SUDAAN data set.
A new SORTBY statement has been added to the RECORDS procedure. Now users can sort an input data set by a list of one or more variables, for example the NEST variables.
