I was curious to whether the above statements by Matthew (in June '08) still holds true after more than 6 years. Can SAS OR solve Mixed Integer Non Linear Programming?

You can try PROC OPTLSO:
But if your problem can be linearized, you might see better performance by using the MILP solver instead.
We have used over two dozen approaches to tackle various MINLP problems. Can you share any details for your problem?

I also have a very similar problem as abhik above.
I have a binary variable, linear objective and linear constraints. However, when I run optmodel I get the following error:
ERROR: A linear coefficient for constraint 'c' is missing or invalid.
This makes me believe that one of my constraints is not truly linear. I have tried using Transreg and BoxCox to find the right way to transform said constraint with no success..I keep getting the same error.
So I believe the only solution is to use a MINLP solver..

Actually turned out to be a simple fix after I had a co-worker look it over. The variable in the constraint throwing the linearity coefficient error included missing values.
I thought those would just be thrown out by the presolver but I guess not. Once I deleted those rows or changed the value from "." to 0, OptModel worked fine!

Hi I saw this post and I have a similar situation, I have a binary variable an a nonlinear variable that I could not change to LP yet so I thought maybe you have an idea.
I have two variables as "D" and "Ad" and the condition is:
if D<0 then Ad=D
if D>=0 then 0<=Ad<=D
I model the constraint as
(D-|D|)/2<= Ad <=D
so the left side takes "D" if "D" is negative and "Ad" will be equal to "D" and it takes 0 if "D" is positive. I could nott change this problem to linear. I tried binary variable to change absolute value to the linear form but since I already have one binary, by adding a new one it increases the size a lot and it is not solvable with the memory we have. I appreciate any idea you have.
