Re: options availibility ???

Here is some more information on DOSUBL, which works in 9.3M2:

Tracking progress in your program with SAS Enterprise Guide: another trick - The SAS Dummy

LOCKDOWN is a 9.4 option, but it hasn't been completely documented yet as there are some cautions around using it.  Hopefully we'll have more guidance soon.

ZIP access is a 9.4 feature, but you can create zip files in SAS 9.2 and later with ODS PACKAGE.

Did you try doing a search of SAS documentation at: http://support.sas.com/documentation/93/index.html

??

Looks like DOSUBL has been available since the second maintenance release of 9.3.

Lockdown and Zip Access appear to be 9.4?

Re: options availibility ???

I recently made a comment in Chris blog about the new features. In short:
- The Zip and dosubl enhancements. great they are improvements

- Lockdown??  I have serious doubts on that one.

The reason is that the real problem to be solved is a well designed secure working environment for doying the work analyses.

That concept is failing/missing at SAS. Trying to do something as ducktape repairment afterwards is not the correct approach.

This wil eays get into the common wars that an IT nerd will prohibit usage of something, stating as "dangerous". In this case SAS functionality that is needed for the analysts doing their work. Or on the other side, it will NOT fullfil requirements as set by regulations for secure environments . Both are a/ bad and b/ bad.
