Edit Mode in SAS university edition?

Hi there,

Wanna ask if there's an Edit Mode in the SAS univeristy edition,

so i can edit my dataset( in the format .sas7bdat) right in the coding interface?

I knew that it is working in the regular version of SAS just by right-clicking the column you want to edit in the data set, click "Edit Mode" then you have it.

Thank you all for your comments and help.

No...and you shouldn't be doing that anyways.


Identify the records that need changing and change them via code so you have a log of changes. The only case where manually changing a dataset might be acceptable would be...homework? And even then it's not a good idea since you'll get into bad habits.
