Hi SAS Experts,


We are planning on upgrading our oracle database from 12c to 18c. This is a major update from 12c.

Currently we are using SAS 9.3 and 9.4. 

So can someone give me insights on the compatibility issues between SAS 9.3(SAS EG, SAS MC,etc) and Oracle 18c as well as

SAS 9.4 and Oracle 18c.



SAS Employee



Minimum requirements for SAS/Access to Oracle for 9.3 and 9.4 is Oracle Server version 11gR2 or later. Oracle 18c is supported with SAS 9.3 and SAS 9.4.

You may be caught out by this with the 18c client, so I'll leave it here:
