Missing INTERVALDS option

I'm trying to use INTCK with a custom calendar. For that I have to set the INTERVALDS option of SAS. For some reason my SAS keeps giving me the Error that it doesn't recognize the option. Here is the exact line I'm submitting and the error I'm getting.

options intervalds=(BankingDays=BankDayDS);

ERROR 13-12: Unrecognized SAS option name, INTERVALDS.

By the way even when I go to Tools>Options>System>Input Control>Data Processing (this is where the INTERVALDS option should be), I don't see it.

Any help is appreciated.

Re: Missing INTERVALDS option

Are you using Version 9.2 or later?

Yes, I'm using SAS 9.2 on Windows 7.

Re: Missing INTERVALDS option

I think your SAS9.2 is the first version .

Using %put &sysvlong ; Check your sas version.

And Using

proc options option=intervalds  ;run;

Check whether your SAS has such option.

I did that and I obtained this...

9.02.01M0P020508


10001  proc options option=intervalds  ;run;

    SAS (r) Proprietary Software Release 9.2  TS1M0

ERROR: Unrecognized SAS option name, INTERVALDS.

NOTE: The SAS System stopped processing this step because of errors.

NOTE: PROCEDURE OPTIONS used (Total process time):

      real time           0.00 seconds

      cpu time            0.00 seconds

So I think that means I am using the correct version, yes? The INTERVALDS option is supposed to be available to me, correct? Why it not is available?

No.  Your system is 9.2 phase 1 (i.e., TS1xx).  You need at least 9.2 phase 2 (i.e., TS2xx)
