Hi Everyone,

I would like to inquire that is there any way through which we can attach a stored process created in SAS Enterprise Guide version 7.13 to SAS Information Map version 4.4 M4.


Please assist me.



It depends on how you're using the Stored Process and the Information Map.

It is possible to have a stored process provide data to an information map. If this is what you mean, then EG is really out of the picture after you create your stored process. In Information Map Studio, you have to define the stored process (or "bind" the stored process to the Information Map) inside Information Map Studio. Note that in this scenario, your stored process does NOT produce report output -- it produces data that is used by the information map. In this example it shows restricting access to data at the row level using a stored process to populate an information map.

In the other scenario, your Stored Process is producing a report output, using the Information Map as a data source. Your Stored Process in EG would need to be defined to run on the Workspace server (because Information Maps run on the Workspace server) and you'll need a LIBNAME statement that uses the INFOMAPS engine, as shown here (page 117)

Hope this helps. Note that most of the people working with Stored Processes will be monitoring this Forum specifically for Stored Processes:

Hi @Cynthia_sas


The link of the document which was provided by you was for older version of SAS Information Map i.e SAS IMAP 3.1. Currently I am using SAS IMAP v 4.4 M4. In the previous version there was an option of stored process directly under the tool option but in the later version it is not available.


Kindly assist.
