- SAS Program Effciency for Beginners by Bruce Gilsen. In: Proceedings of the Twenty-Fourth Annual SAS Users Group International Conference. April 11-14, 1999, Miami Beach, Florida.
- Introduction to the Basics: Avoiding Some Pitfalls by Deb Cassidy. In: Proceedings of the Twenty-Third Annual SAS Users Group International Conference. March 22-25, 1998, Nashville, Tennessee.
- A Beginners Guide to SAS Date and Time Handling by Wayne Finley. In: Proceedings of the Twenty-Fifth Annual SAS Users Group International Conference. April 9-12, 2000, Indianapolis, Indiana.

- Fuzzy Merges: Examples and Techniques by Malachy J. Foley. In: Proceedings of the Twenty-Fourth Annual SAS Users Group International Conference. April 11-14, 1999, Miami Beach, Florida.
- Everything you want to know about MERGE but were afraid to ask, SAS Technical Support Tech Note TS-644
- SAS Users Group International (SUGI) Proceedings online, a very usful site with a myriad of papers on SAS, from beginner's guides to the most arcane techniques.
Note: The Gilsen and Cassidy papers offer good general advice for SAS programming. Those who use CRSP and TAQ (or any SAS dataset with formatted dates and/or times) will find Finley provides an overview of the necessary SAS functions and formats. The Foley paper will help those trying to merge datasets where there is no variable that has a one-to-one match between the datasets (for example, matching quotes to trades in TAQ within 5 minutes).
