I recently downloaded the SAS University edition of SAS studio. I am attempting to work on a remote database at the Wharton Research Data Service (WRDS).
In order to log on to the WRDS database, you need to run the following code:
%let wrds=wrds.wharton.upen.edu 4016;
signon wrds username=_prompt_;
When I run this code, I get the following error in the log
ERROR: The SAS/CONNECT product with which the global statement 'signon' is associated is either not licensed for your system or the
product license has expired. Please contact your SAS installation representative.
I did contact my SAS representative, and they sent me here. Does anyone know a way to log on to a remote data service through the SAS University edition of SAS Studio? Or does the error indeed entail that I would need to purchase a new version of the licensing?
