    On the Compare and Conquer page, I added the SAS paper on Exploring Popular Programming Techniques for SAS® and Microsoft® Users by Kirk Paul Lafler.  From this paper, I added example code using PROC EXPORT, PROC IMPORT and ODS EXCEL.

    On the common FAQ page, I added these two tips.  See if you know these answers.

    What happens when you apply a datetime format on a date variable?

    Is it possible to apply a CASE clause within a ORDER clause?

    On the Clinical Lab Data page, I corrected one link on normal data range and added another link about lab conversions.  

    Thanks SAS Savvy members for informing me about any broken links.  I am happy to replace links with more recent information or include member links for easy reference.

    On the common faq page, I added an alternative method to transposing your dataset without using PROC TRANSPOSE.  See if it makes sense to you.
