Case sensitivity

I spent several hours today trying to figure out why code I was running was not working. I got no error messages, but there were no results from a table that had thousands of observations. Then, more out of desperation than anything else I made the following change

ods output ttests=TTests(where=(method="pooled"));

to

ods output ttests=TTests(where=(method="Pooled"));

that is capitalized the P in the quote and (of course) it ran in seconds.

I had always heard and experienced that SAS does not care about case. Obviously for quotes it does :p

No error messages was annoying :mad:

Yeah I remember a long time ago the very first line of code I wrote in R I ignore case and it didn't work. This was because SAS had conditioned me.
