SAS/ACCESS Software for Relational Databases: Reference

Every column in a table has a name and a data type. The data type indicates to the DBMS how much physical storage to reserve for the column and the format in which the data is stored. SYBASE data types fall into four categories: types for character data, types for numeric data, types for abstract values, and user-defined data types. Each of these types is described in the following sections.

Note:   SAS/ACCESS does not support the following SYBASE data types: BINARY, VARBINARY, IMAGE, NCHAR(n), and NVARCHAR(n). SAS/ACCESS provides an error message when it attempts to read a table that has at least one column that uses an unsupported data type.  [cautionend]

You must enclose all character data in single or double quotation marks.

CHAR(n)
CHAR(n) is a character string that can have 1 to 255 letters, symbols, and numbers. You specify the maximum length of the string with n. Storage size is also n, regardless of the real entry length.
VARCHAR(n)
VARCHAR(n) is a varying-length character string that can have 1 to 255 letters, symbols, and numbers. You specify the maximum length of the string with n. Storage size is the real entry length.
TEXT
TEXT stores character data of variable length up to two gigabytes. SAS supports the TEXT data type provided in SYBASE; however, SAS only allows a maximum of 32,767 bytes of character data.
NUMERIC(p,s), DECIMAL(p,s)
Exact numeric values have specified degrees of precision (p) and scale (s). NUMERIC data can have a precision of 1 to 38 and scale of 0 to 38, where the value of s must be less or equal to than the value of p. The DECIMAL data type is identical to the NUMERIC data type. The default precision and scale are (18,0) for the DECIMAL data type.
REAL, FLOAT
Floating-point values consist of an integer part, a decimal point, and a fraction part, or scientific notation. The exact format for REAL and FLOAT data depends on the number of significant digits and the precision that your machine supports. You can use all arithmetic operations and aggregate functions with REAL and FLOAT except modulus. The REAL (4 byte) range is approximately 3.4E-38 to 3.4E+38, with 7-digit precision. The FLOAT (8 byte) range is approximately 1.7E-308 to 1.7E+308, with 15-digit precision.
TINYINT, SMALLINT, INT
Integers contain no fractional part. The three integer data types are TINYINT (1 byte), which has a range of 0 to 255; SMALLINT (2 bytes), which has a range of -32,768 to +32,767; and INT (4 bytes), which has a range of -2,147,483,648 to +2,147,483,647.
BIT
BIT data has a storage size of one bit and holds either a 0 or a 1; other integer values are accepted but are interpreted as 1. BIT data cannot be NULL and cannot have indexes defined on it.

SYBASE date and money data types are abstract data types and are described in this section. Refer to your documentation on Transact-SQL for more information about abstract data types.

SMALLDATETIME
SMALLDATETIME data is 4 bytes long and consists of one small integer that represents the number of days after January 1, 1900, and one small integer that represents the number of minutes past midnight. The date range is from January 1, 1900, to December 31, 2079.
DATETIME
DATETIME data has two 4-byte integers. The first integer represents the number of days after January 1, 1900, and the second integer represents the number of minutes past midnight. Values can range from January 1, 1753 to December 31, 9999.

DATETIME values are input as quoted character strings in various alphabetic or numeric formats. Time data must be entered in the prescribed order (hours; minutes; seconds; milliseconds; AM, am, PM, pm) and must include either a colon or an AM/PM designator. Case is ignored, and spaces can be inserted anywhere within the value.

When you input DATETIME values, the national language setting determines how the date values are interpreted. You can change the default date order with the SET DATEFORMAT statement. See your Transact-SQL documentation for more information.

You can use SYBASE built-in date functions to perform some arithmetic calculations on DATETIME values.

TIMESTAMP
TIMESTAMP data is used by SAS in UPDATE mode. If you select a column that contains TIMESTAMP data for input into SAS, the values are displayed in hex format.
SMALLMONEY
SMALLMONEY data is 4 bytes long and can range from -214,748.3648 to 214,748.3647. When displayed, it is rounded up to two places.
MONEY
MONEY data is 8 bytes long and can range from -922,337,203,685,477.5808 to 922,337,203,685,477.5807. When input, a dollar sign ($) must appear before the MONEY value. For negative values, the minus sign must follow the dollar sign. Commas are not allowed.

MONEY values are accurate to a ten-thousandth of a monetary unit. However, when they are displayed, the dollar sign is omitted and MONEY values are rounded up to two places. A comma is inserted after every three digits.

You can store values for currencies other than USA dollars, but no form of conversion is provided.

You can supplement the SYBASE system data types by defining your own data types with the SYBASE system procedure sp_addtype. When you define your own data type for a column, you can specify a default value (other than NULL) for the column and define a range of allowable values for the column.

SYBASE has a special value that is called NULL. NULL means that a value in a row is not known or is missing; it does not mean that the value is blank or zero. It is analogous to the SAS System's missing value.

By default, SYBASE columns are defined as NOT NULL. NOT NULL tells SYBASE not to add a row to the table unless the row has a value for the specified column.

If you want a column to accept NULL values, you must explicitly define it as NULL. Here is an example of a CREATE TABLE statement that defines all of the columns for a table to be NULL except for CUSTOMER. In this case, SYBASE only accepts a row that contains a value for CUSTOMER.

create table CUSTOMERS
   (CUSTOMER        char(8)    not null,
    STATE           char(2)        null,
    ZIPCODE         char(5)        null,
    COUNTRY         char(20)       null,
    TELEPHONE       char(12)       null,
    NAME            char(60)       null,
    CONTACT         char(30)       null,
    STREETADDRESS   char(40)       null,
    CITY            char(25)       null,
    FIRSTORDERDATE  datetime       null);

any datetime, date, or time format DATETIME

The DBLOAD procedure also supports SYBASE user-defined data types. Use the TYPE= statement to specify a user-defined data type.


Inserting TEXT into SYBASE from SAS

TEXT data can only be inserted into a SYBASE table by using the BULK= data set option, as in the following example:

data yourlib.newtable(bulk=yes); 
   set work.sasbigtext;
run;  

If the BULK option is not used, you will receive the following error message:

ERROR: Object not found in database. Error Code: -2782 
An untyped variable in the PREPARE statement 'S401bcf78' 
is being resolved to a TEXT or IMAGE type. 
This is illegal in a dynamic PREPARE statement.

National Language Support for SYBASE

To support output and update processing from SAS into SYBASE in languages other than English, special setup steps are required so that date, time, and datetime values can be processed correctly. In SAS, you must ensure that the DFLANG= system option is set to the correct language. This can be globally set by the system administrator or set by a user within a single SAS session. In SYBASE, the default client language, set in the locales.dat file, must match the language used in SAS.

Killexams : Small business needs a different sort of software developer

Software developers are some of the most highly sought-after IT professionals, and many companies consistently struggle to find the coders they need. 

That can be especially true of smaller businesses, particularly if they lack the money to tempt developers who might otherwise end up going to big technology companies. But what's also true is that not every developer wants to work for a giant, faceless corporation. And in any case, every software developer has to begin designing code somewhere, whether at a mid-size tech company or their old college roommate's startup, which means that smaller businesses are often a route into the industry for many developers just starting out.

And depending on a company's size, a developer will face different challeges and use different skill sets.

Brendan O'Leary, developer evangelist at GitLab, says that smaller companies can offer greater feelings of connectedness between a developer and their work's impact on their company. O'Leary says smaller companies allow developers to focus more on their cycle time, which is the time it takes from writing the first line of code to seeing it go into production.

That can be a huge advantage that a small company can offer, he says: "That's an intrinsic motivator that's really hard to replace with money or anything else."

O'Leary says developers at larger companies are more likely to feel disconnected from their work's direct impact on their company and its customers. 

Also: The future of the web will need a different sort of software developer

Amanda Richardson, CEO of CoderPad, agrees that developers at smaller companies have a unique chance to witness the fruits of their labor by working on a project in its entirety.

"Working at a smaller company can provide the opportunity to work from start to finish on projects while seeing the immediate impact of your work," she says. 

According to Richardson, small businesses might be the route new or inexperienced developers choose, as startups are typically operating within the bounds of small budgets. Developers at smaller companies will need excellent problem-solving and research skills. On the other hand, she says more prominent companies are in the market for IT professionals who might not have a broad scope of experience in all facets of software development but have a deep understanding of one specific topic.

"Because budgetary constraints often mean startups can't match the pay of large companies, they are more open to considering profiles that don't tick all the boxes in terms of degrees or professional experience," she says.

Bigger businesses do offer specific advantages for certain types of individuals. At a larger company, software developers and engineers can expect more structure, clearly designated roles and responsibilities, and established processes. A larger company is probably further along in its DevOps growth and hires developers who are ready to face a project head-on. That can be a good environment for someone just starting out.

"Working as a developer at a large company implies a structured environment with well-established processes and roles," Richardson says. "It can be especially valuable for young graduates to learn within a structured environment and see software development at scale while acquiring best practices."

The downside, of course, is that developers in a bigger business might find themselves completing mundane tasks. According to a Stack Overflow survey, 45% agreed that feeling unproductive is the number one reason they're unhappy at work, with inflexible working practices not far behind as something to complain about.

This issue is particularly true at larger companies if developers work on a small part of a larger project, with each team of developers holding one piece of the puzzle, and little sense of what the completed work looks like.

In contrast, smaller companies can offer software developers a more comprehensive range of knowledge, as each developer will need to take on more pieces of the puzzle and manage more parts of a project. At these companies, developers will be closer to understanding a problem and will work closely with the required steps to find a solution. 

Both Richardson and O'Leary agree that smaller companies have a slight advantage over larger companies with how fast they can develop new software. 

Richardson thinks this advantage is because larger companies must make more complex decisions. At the same time, O'Leary says it's because developers can focus more intensively on their cycle time at smaller companies.

Larger companies overcome some of the challenges of building software by using smaller groups to make the process more manageable. Smaller teams can communicate and collaborate faster, releasing software at lightning speed. As a company grows, it will need to split its engineers and developers into much smaller teams, and each team will oversee a small portion of a project.

Even some of the largest tech companies still want their developers to keep to small teams, to emulate the agility of small businesses.

"The smaller the team, the better the collaboration," says Amazon – hardly a small company – in its so-called "two-pizza team rule", which states that DevOps teams should be small enough for two pizzas to feed everyone on the team.

"Collaboration is also very important as the software releases are moving faster than ever. And a team's ability to deliver the software can be a differentiating factor for your organization against your competition. Imagine a situation in which a new product feature needs to be released or a bug needs to be fixed – you want this to happen as quickly as possible so you can have a smaller go-to-market time," it says.

Also: GitHub vs GitLab: Which program should you go with?

Flexibility is another factor. Richardson says developers working at small companies and startups have more autonomy and responsibilities than they would at larger business. This autonomy creates room for developers to pitch new ideas to the company. According to the Stack Overflow survey, 39% of respondents said that a lack of growth opportunities makes them unhappy with their jobs. A developer's possibilities to expand and grow in their career might be much higher at smaller companies.

But the same autonomy can mean a lack of guidance and more room for error.

"The drawback of working for a smaller company is you're unlikely to have the reassuring support of a seasoned engineer to answer questions and help you ramp up or be able to test your ideas at scale," she says.

O'Leary says it all depends on the developer and what kind of career goals they have. Some people might enjoy the challenges of trialing new code and solving problems that small businesses face. Others might prefer the stability of a larger, more established company.

Working at a small, mid-size, or large company has positive and negative aspects. It all depends on what an individual developer or engineer strives for in their career, and how many responsibilities they'd like to take on in their professional lives.

But it's almost universal for developers to want to understand the impact of their work and feel like the work they complete is meaningful and valuable to society. So in a tough market, hiring managers at companies big and small should look at the work they are offering and consider how the developers they recruit can be made to feel like they are really making a difference.

Killexams : Education Professional Development Superpower? ISTE and ASCD Set to Merge

In the latest sign of just how central technology has become to teaching and learning, the International Society for Technology in Education, a nonprofit that helps K-12 teachers make the most of digital tools, and the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development, one of the oldest and largest K-12 professional development associations, are slated to merge.

Richard Culatta, currently the chief executive officer of ISTE, would lead the new, larger organization if ASCD members vote to approve the plan, the final step in the process. The merged organization—which is still yet to be named—would share a governing board, according to the plan.

Under the proposed agreement, ASCD and ISTE would retain their separate identities and brands, Culatta said. But it is unclear how exactly that would work under the new umbrella organization.

Both organizations believe the merger is a “no brainer,” given the unprecedented advancement in digital tools, devices, and internet connectivity spurred by the pandemic and the growth in digital learning over the past decade or so, Culatta said.

This idea of bringing an infusion of joy back into learning, that's something that I think you'll see we will work on as a shared messaging across both of our communities.

It is “very clear that the future of education needs to combine really solid leadership on the instructional side, and effective use of technology and new approaches” on the other, Culatta said. “When you can bring those two together, that’s where magic starts to happen. That’s where the solutions for the future are going to come from.”

The merger has already gotten the green light from the boards of both nonprofits, but there’s still one more key step: ASCD’s 80,000 members will be given the opportunity to vote and a simple majority will decide the final outcome.

The merger would create an organization that’s poised to serve the shifting needs of the K-12 field, said Sandy Husk, ASCD’s interim CEO and executive director.

“This is exactly what educators need—for organizations to combine their strengths and to make it even more seamless for them to access the information that they need,” she said.

“ISTE is two steps ahead of us on really solidly understanding innovation in the digital tech space. ASCD is two steps ahead in terms of really focusing on the whole child and the whole concept of how you support educators” through research and resources that can immediately inform practice.

ASCD is well-known for its publications and newsletters, such as Educational Leadership magazine and ASCD SmartBrief; and ISTE owns EdSurge, an online news service that covers educational technology issues and other syllabus in K-12 and higher education.

Designing a one-stop shop for tech and professional development

The merger comes at a moment when professional development for education technology could use a shot in the arm. Though more districts than ever have embraced 1-to-1 computing initiatives that put a device in the hands of every student, teachers still consistently say technology training is insufficient.

For instance, in a July survey by the EdWeek Research Center , nearly half of educators—48 percent—said the training they or their teachers receive to use educational technology tools was mediocre or poor. And more than half said the ed-tech professional development experiences educators participate in are mostly one-time events with little or no follow-up coaching or training.

One area that Culatta believes ASCD can help ISTE strengthen: Helping teachers who have embraced technology move into leadership roles in their districts. “Our members are great, passionate leaders,” he said. But “we don’t really have a pipeline for that. We just say, ‘OK! Good luck!’”

He’s also hoping a merged organization can help reignite educators’ passion for teaching, at a time when employee morale in K-12 schools has been circling the drain.

“This idea of bringing an infusion of joy back into learning, that’s something that I think you’ll see we will work on as a shared messaging across both of our communities,” Culatta said.

During a transition period, staff from both organizations will take on leadership roles. No staff reductions are expected at ASCD or ISTE as a result of the merger, according to Husk and an ISTE spokesperson. And though ASCD and ISTE are both known for their large annual conferences, there are no immediate plans to combine those events into one.

In the weeks leading up to Nov. 14, when ASCD members will vote on the merger, Culatta and Husk will reach out to people in both communities to delve into how the merged organization can meet their needs.

“We really care about what the membership thinks, whether they’re voting or not,” Husk said. “We want to be connected to the people who have been connected with us.”

Husk is confident that ASCD’s membership will vote to approve the merger, given the enthusiasm she’s seen so far. “I don’t imagine a world where this won’t move forward,” she said. But if for some reason it does not, she expects the two organizations will continue to collaborate.

Merging two very different cultures

The past several years have been turbulent ones for the nearly 80-year-old ASCD . The organization was more than $4.6 million in the red, according to its 2019 tax filings, the most exact available. ASCD has had several exact years of financial trouble , and saw significant staff cuts. Over the past five years it has had four leaders, including two CEOs and two interim CEOs.

However, ASCD turned a $2.5 million operating profit in fiscal year 2021, and its most exact financial report, which is still being finalized, is positive, a spokesperson said. Last year, the organization’s board approved a blueprint to help ASCD transition to a more digital model “for growth and to ensure a durable future,” the spokesperson added.

The organization has had complaints about “constant layoffs,” “low morale,” “widespread bullying,” and “poor decisionmaking by management,” according to exact reviews of the company on Glassdoor, a networking site that allows anonymous posting by people purporting to be current or former employees. “Have had three bosses in three years,” one person wrote. “The only thing they seem to produce is stressed-out leaders.” Other reviews, however, praised the hardworking and dedicated staff at ASCD.

And reactions to the planned merger, which was shared with staff this week, have been positive, said the spokesperson, who shared this comment from the executive director of California ASCD: “Looking forward to an even brighter future,” said Kathleen McCreery.

Reviews about ISTE on the same Glassdoor site tout the “smart, hardworking staff,” “great mission,” and “very motivated, highly intelligent, and passionate people.” ISTE, which was established in 1989, was roughly $1 million in the black, according to its 2020 tax document, the most exact on record . Culatta, the former chief innovation officer for the Rhode Island department of education and director of the office of education technology at the U.S. Department of Education, has led the organization since May of 2017.

While Culatta acknowledged that there have been “some tough years at ASCD,” he believes “the expertise that’s there is just unmatched anywhere in the education ecosystem.” Merging two organizations with broad reach “is going to be tough,” Culatta said. “But I think the value is being able to unlock amazing supports and resources for the education community as we bring our collective brains together.”

Killexams : SAP and Sybase to Fuel Enterprise Mobile App Development With Latest Release of Sybase Unwired Platform

In an effort to fast track mobile application development through a standardized mobile enterprise application platform, SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) and Sybase, Inc ., an SAP company and industry leader in enterprise and mobile software, today announced Sybase Unwired Platform 2.1. The latest release will enrich the mobile application development experience through significant enhancements to its software development kit (SDK) and new developer resources for the more than 2 million members of SAP Community Network . Today’s announcement was made at SAP TechEd 2011 , co-located with Sybase TechWave and being held in Las Vegas, Nevada , from September 12-16.

As enterprises adopt mobile app lications, they are often faced with point solutions not capable of accessing critical data across the entire enterprise. This release of Sybase Unwired Platform is one of the first fully integrated mobile enterprise application platforms (MEAPs) architected to leverage existing developer skill sets and industry standards, reducing the heavy lifting often required with mobile application development.

“Enterprises must include mobile as a component of their app portfolio or become non-competitive,” said Jack Gold, president of J. Gold Associates, LLC. “But native and Web mobile application development can be difficult due to the diversity of device types, backend systems, etc. As a result, there is a compelling need for a unified, standards-based platform to ease the process for developers, reduce overall cost and accelerate time to delivery. The enterprise mobility market has matured and requires mobile enterprise application platforms to develop and deploy high-value apps capable of spanning across many lines of business. There is a compelling opportunity for companies like SAP and Sybase to create a developer community and partner ecosystem that enables highly functional and cost-effective mobile apps for enterprise deployment.”

Helping Companies Mobilize through a Standardized Platform 
Sybase Unwired Platform 2.1 and mobile SDK aim to provide a collection of new tooling, server components and libraries that will enable mobile and Web developers to more easily create a wide variety of mobile applications across various device platforms, including iOS, BlackBerry, Android, and Windows Mobile. Designed from the ground up to support various types of mobile requirements for companies of all sizes, the latest platform release is planned to include support for SAP data integration through SAP NetWeaver Gateway technology. This reinforces an already strong integration story for easier development of online applications connected to SAP backend systems. Additionally, Sybase’s industry-leading mobile device management (MDM) solution, Afaria , can be added to complete the platform by enabling IT to manage mobile devices and applications.

Highlights of planned new and enhanced features for developers and IT managers include:
• Standalone SDK install for easy access/download and integration with Afaria platform libraries
• OData SDK for development of online SAP mobile apps capable of accessing data and processes from SAP systems through SAP NetWeaver Gateway
• Support for multiple application types ,including rich offline apps with data synchronization, lightweight online-only apps and apps based on Sybase Unwired Platform Hybrid Web Container

Building a Strong Developer and Partner Community Ecosystem 
SAP and Sybase today also made available new developer resources such as video training and code samples to the more than 2 million SAP Community Network members. This expansive community provides value to the overall mobile ecosystem by contributing articles, blogs, tutorials and forum participation.

“With an existing developer community network of more than 2 million members and an SAP customer base of more than 170,000, there is tremendous opportunity for SAP and Sybase to innovate around and execute on our on-device strategy,” said Dr. Raj Nathan, executive vice president, chief marketing officer and head of Mobile Applications, Sybase. “The high interest in mobile apps and online store-like environments in the consumer space is now extending to the enterprise. However, the model requires a much different architectural approach to be successful. This marks a significant release for the entire mobile app developer community and our growing partner ecosystem, as they now have a standards-based, unified platform and community program to rally around and deliver high volumes of enterprise mobility apps.”

Sybase Unwired Platform 2.1 and the mobile SDK are planned for availability in the fourth quarter of 2011. R ead what SAP and Sybase partners have to say about these offerings: “ Partners Go Mobile With Latest Release of Sybase Unwired Platform ,” and watch footage highlighting rapid mobile application development using Sybase Unwired Platform: “ Video: SAP Mobility InnoJam, July 2011 .”

Killexams : Coinbase Cloud debuts Web3 developer platform

Blockchain infrastructure platform Coinbase Cloud has officially rolled out its Web3 developer platform, allowing users to build new decentralized applications free of charge. 

The new developer platform, dubbed Node, allows users to create and monitor Web3 applications while accessing the Ethereum blockchain and indexers, the company disclosed Wednesday. While Node offers a tiered subscription model, the free plan includes access to advanced APIs that allow for the creation of decentralized applications and nonfungible token (NFT) applications.

Coinbase Cloud claims that Node enables faster creation of Web3 applications while reducing both complexity and cost. This feeds into the platform’s broader service offerings, which include all-in-one access to payments, identity, trading and data infrastructure.

As the name implies, Coinbase Cloud was created by crypto exchange Coinbase in 2021 to provide developers with familiar tools for building decentralized products.
