What is a "SAS catdb"?

I've run into the existance of a SAS catdb on a unix (solaris) system and have no idea what it is. Searching SAS support, I'm not getting any hits on catdb.

Does anybody know?

Maybe they meant to say a SAS catalog which has a file extension of .cat7bdat. If so, you can check for the existance of a catalog in a number of ways

-1) function: cexist

-2) look at the dictionary table catalogs.
proc sql;
select *
from dictionary.catalogs;

-3) SAS Help Views

I hope this helps

I did find some info leading me to believe that it is a .net microsoft catalog. The system with the catdb is one running SAS Intrnet

Maybe the is really Microsoft stuff???
