Do I need a new version of Tagsets for SAS 9.4?

Do I need a new version of Tagsets for SAS9.4?   Also, I am running in a Server environment and it is not letting me WRITE to the Template Store.  I remember getting around this after the last upgrade we went through, but that was several years ago.

Thanks!

As you are running in a server environment it is weird you want to change the software there unless this is done by a change as part of releasemanagement.
Unless you are responsible for the installation updates should have a closed access.
Every SAS release/version is coming with a tagsets version.

You can check the policies/versions at Base SAS: ODS MARKUP

I would assume no, but you can check the version.

ODS tagsets.excelxp file="test.xml" options(doc="help");


If its not 1.130 you can upgrade it.

You should also be able to save it in your Sasuser library rather than the server side.

Regarding not being able to write to the TEMPLATE store, what I've ended up doing is to create new templates in the SAS WORK library. This is a very reliable location for templates as each SAS session or job has its own WORK directory. This means no locking problems or getting the perennial unable to access SASUSER library problem if you have more than one session.

The only downside is you have to create your templates for every session, but to me that is a minor inconvenience. To ensure your templates in the WORK library are accessible you need to have an ODS PATH statement like so:

ods path work.template sasuser.templat(update) sashelp.tmplmst(read);
