figuring out what SAS stuff you have

Can anyone tell me if there is a way to tell what SAS stuff you have in your agency from within EG?

PROC SETINIT will tell you what software you have licensed.

The best way to determine what is available on a Windows machine is to run filedetvX (x is 8 or 9), see

You can run that from within EG if you are setup to have access to the "X" command (that won't work for SAS on a remote server).

Re: figuring out what SAS stuff you have

From EG, you can:

- go to View->Server List
- connect to your server (expand it to see Libraries, for example)
- Right-click on the server in the list and select Properties.
- On the Software tab, select View SAS Server Products.

This will show you what products are licensed and installed. It's not comprehensive -- it shows mostly just those products that have relevance to an EG user.

Re: figuring out what SAS stuff you have

Thanks! Now can you tell me how I can actually view the data in the libraries that I seem to have available to me? I think it might be a permissions thing, but I'm not sure who is our SAS administrator type person who would set permissions or such Smiley Sad
