I am trying to determine how often or if a SAS dataset is being used (read / accessed). Is there a way to tell how many times a dataset has been read / accessed? I have checked the results from proc contents and proc dataset but I do not see anything obvious that will tell me. Using the last access date will not give me enough information.

For this, you best activate the operating system's auditing subsystem. It detects any access, even one done outside of SAS (eg copy the file).
