1.The most popular EUD tool is the spreadsheet. Due to their unrestricted nature, spreadsheets allow relatively un-sophisticated computer users to write programs that represent complex data models, while shielding them from the need to learn lower-level programming languages
.2. Because of their common use in business, spreadsheet skills are among the most beneficial skills for a graduate employee to have, and are therefore the most commonly sought after In the United States of America alone, there are an estimated 13 million end user developers programming with spreadsheet.
In many situations scientists have a set of
standard reports they use to analyze data from
many different studies. In certain cases the
reports can be run more than one way and there
are options that can be added to customize the
reports. This paper describes a system of using
SAS with a Visual Basic “front end” program
that uses a graphical user interface (GUI) to
allow the user to customize SAS reports at run
time. The data used in this example is collected
from short term toxicology rodent studies done
by the National Toxicology Program to help
determine if a given chemical is a carcinogen.
The data sets analyzed by these reports
typically contains two types of variables: data
that describes the animal the data was collected
from (sex, species, age, body weight and food
consumption) and the many different
measurements that are taken during the course
of the study (blood cell counts and other blood
