Hi,

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

 

Thanks.

Re: Installing interface/access OLE DB instruction

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

 

What is the use case here ?

Re: Installing interface/access OLE DB instruction

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

[ Edited ]

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:

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OLE_DB

 

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