question about use of tagsets in sas 9.2

1) Are tagsets going to be updated in 9.2 as they were in previous releases and if so how will they be made available?
2) For version 9.1.3 I used an ods path statement along the lines of:

ods path newtempl.mytemplates (read)
sasuser.templat (read)
sashelp.tmplmst (read);

to point to my updated templates. Is this structure still advisable/necessary?

TIA.

Hi:
Yes, in SAS 9.2, template access for reading and writing is still controlled via the use of the ODS PATH statement.

Sorry, if you go to the same web site where you downloaded tagsets for SAS 8 and SAS 9.1.3, you can still download updated tagsets, if there are any.

Generally, I have found that tagset templates delivered with SAS 9.2 haven't needed updating yet -- for my purposes. As far as I know, the mechanism for delivering tagsets has not changed for SAS 9.2 -- this is where I would go to get updated tagset templates.

If any tagset was ONLY for SAS 9.2, it would be noted on this page.

Usually, the only tagset template I ever update is the TAGSETS.EXCELXP template. And, so far, I haven't needed to update it yet.

Also, TAGSETS.TABLEEDITOR is available for download on a different page:
