## Some code [Software]

Hello again

» So you are an advanced RUser!

I'd say that I am at the basement of being an advanced user. Must credit PAGIN (population approach group in India) for introducing me to R and R studio a couple of years back. Its been a good learning curve thereafter.

Interesting...

WOW, this looks much better, however I guess while we represent in CDISC it has to be in the form of YYYY-MM-DD for the .XPT. I find myself complicating over this now :( .

Interesting read. Little did I know about it. Thank you for bringing it up.

Additionally, while I am fully trying to understand the datasets structure for submission, my ship hit an iceberg this morning.
Under the module structure for submission for datasets as a part of the dossier, as defined by CDISC for USFDA, it requires the SAS programs for ADAM datasets to be given as note file documents.
You can get the module structure from HERE
This looks clearly like CDISC recommends SAS for datasets (which is like a monopoly and it kinda brings us back to point one from where we started this thread :( ).
