Is SAS Enterprise Guide independent of base SAS system?

In SAS EG 7.1, I cannot import data (in .xlsx format).  I realized that the SAS 9.3 installed on my compter also expired.  I wonder if SAS EG must be based on a SAS system (SAS 9.3 or other versions)?

 

Thanks!

If you are using SAS Enterprise Guide with your local SAS, then yes, this would be a problem.  You'll need to obtain a new SID/SETINIT from SAS or your SAS admin to renew your local SAS.

 

SAS Enterprise Guide can also connect to remote SAS servers.  If you have a central SAS environment that you're using, then your local SAS should be a non-factor.  You do need to be connected to an active version of SAS, local or remote.
