Re: SAS/SHARE

SAS/SHARE is only needed if you need write access while other users have the file open for read. "Write access" being limited, as a complete rewrite of a data set is also not possible in SAS/SHARE; only updates in place can be done.

Another use that is specific to SAS/SHARE is using the server as backend for the SAS ODBC driver.

Thanks for the reply.

Now a days SAS EG (9.4)using SAS integration technologies to execute SAS on a server.

 

If that is the case then do we require SAS/SHARE  also along with integration technologies in SAS9.4?

Re: SAS/SHARE

In my experience SAS/SHARE is not widely used these days as SAS datasets are rarely used for multi-user updates. In any case in EG the only way to manually enter data is via the Table Viewer.

 

So I would say not necessary.
