Efficient Merging With Proc Format in SAS

#1

Hi,

I read that Proc Format is one of the efficient way of merging. It works faster compare to Proc SQL and Data steps. I am not clear on it. Can you please help me to understand it better? It will be great if you give a scenario when we should use Proc SQL, Proc Format and Data step.

Thx,
Imran
