Enterprise Guide - Add record count to data table options?

Hi all,

 

When I was using PC SAS, and I got the options for a data table, I could see the column names, and the column properties like I do now in Enterprise Guide.  

 

The one thing that seems to be missing in Enterprise Guide is the record count property for the table itself.

 

Is that something that we could add?

 

Thanks so much for letting us make suggestions!

 

Barb

 

P.S.  I get to this by opening up the "Servers" list on the left pane of Enterprise Guide, then to "Librairies", then to the libname I am using, and then open that to see the list of tables.  Then I right click on the table name, and choose "properties".  I can't remember if PC SAS put the record count on the "general" tab or another one.  But I know I could get to that information in PC SAS.  Thanks!

Barb,

 

Thank you for your suggestion!  We agree, this would be useful.

 

While it is likely a release or two away, we are planning on overhauling the properties dialogs in a future release to surface all the properties you can find in the server dictionary tables (ex. sashelp.vtable), which includes the record count.

Ask and ye shall receive (sort of). With the data open in the data viewer, left click on the slider on the right. You'll see a flyover of a "1 of 999,999" kind.
