The two most current versions of SAS are 9.2 and 9.1.3. SAS 9.2 has just been released. SAS 9.1.3 is still active in a lot of shops.
Whether large objects (BLOB, CLOB, etc) are supported, seems to depend on the SAS/Access product. For example, with Oracle, some large objects are supported; while on the DB2 on the mainframe, it seems that large objects are not supported.
"SAS/Access to DB2 on MVS does not support DB2 large objects including
the data types CLOB, DBCLOB, and BLOB. Often these fields are used
to hold graphs, pictures, etc."
You may want to investigate the documentation for the SAS/Access product involved in your question and/or contact SAS Technical Support for more help.
