SAS Dataset with Different Reporting Tools


Hi,

As we all know the limitations in SAS WRS.

So we are opting for other Reporting tools available in the market.

So my question being can we have SAS Dataset/database as the source for Reporting Tools such as Business Objects/Cognos/Microstrategy.

A detailed answer will be very helpful

Thanks in Advance

Yes, through ODBC or OELDB.

For ODBC at least, you need to set up a SAS/SHARE server, and have a SAS license that contains SHARE and SHARE*NET.

If you happen to have SPD Server, I think it's included within that product (for data stored within SPD Server).

So, you could share the SPD Server stored tables via the spdssnet process, see online doc/papers how set this up.

SPD Server supports ODBC & JDBC access.

part of the SPDS Admin Guide, there instruction on how to set that up.

Good luck,
