Hi,

Do you know where I can find instruction file(PDF) about SAS interface/access OLE DB installation on Unix environment?

 

Thanks.

SAS/Access to OLE DB is not supported on UNIX, hence there is no documentation for it.

 

What is the use case here ?

Thank you. This is for Windows and I need it for Unix box. I couldn't find instruction for Unix environment?

Do you maybe mean SAS/Access to ODBC on UNIX ?

No, OLE DB . I need to install OLE DB interface for access to OLAP in SAS.

SAS/ACCESS to ODBC - ODBC is a much more widely-supported database interface standard than OLE DB. Note Microsoft announced that SQL Server 2012 was going to be the last version to support OLE DB:

However apparently it is still being supported in more recent versions.
