Can I change SAS system options such like memsize, sortsize and work?

My customer who uses University Editon has encountered insufficient saswork space error when sorting a several GB dataset.

The customer wants to change memsize=, sortisize= and saswork location.

Is it possible?

 

Regards,

Izumi

Hi, @izumi. Perhaps someone else can answer your question. My thought would be, though, that the purpose of SAS University Edition is to learn SAS coding. It would seem the code could use a smaller dataset to accomplish that purpose, and then the system could be used as configured. Just my two cents.
