Try out SAS

Hi,

I need to get a Windows application talk to a SAS database and would like to try out SAS on my local machine. Is there any trial version available?

Thanks,

Christian

The closest I know about is something called OnDemand (I think formerly known as Learning Edition):

Thanks for the answer.

These versions seem to be available only for US and Canadian residents or university teachers/students and I don't qualify for any of these criteria unfortunately.

Then talk to the person responsible for the SAS database, and see if there could be any other option for you.

Re: Try out SAS

Anybody at SAS listening?

There are "Express" versions available for pretty much all of the DBMS products, and for development environments like Visual Studio, that let people with small-scale requirements familiarize themselves with the products. Neither SAS nor SPSS has one of these; I suspect that the first to introduce one may gain significant market share among people like the users of this forum. [Tom steps off soap box.]

SPSS offers a 14day trial already.
