I'm trying to submit the following code where I need to copy the file "sample.sas" from one folder to another whilst preserving the owner of the file. It executes without error and copies the file, but it changes the owner despite having the '-p' statement.
Any ideas - am I missing something?
filename copy pipe "cp -p /team/dave/sample.sas /team/marc "; data error; file copy; run;

Here's something to think about. If you are using a SERVER version of SAS the code is executed by the server. Perhaps the owner is the Server running SAS??
