PROC FACTEX and PROC OPTEX not found.

Hi,

I am unable to run PROC FACTEX or PROC OPTEX in SAS 9.3 or in the SAS University Edition.  Am I missing something?

I get the following errors in my Log:

ERROR: Procedure FACTEX not found.

ERROR: Procedure OPTEX not found.

Also, am I able to produce a partial factorial design with 16 attributes and 4 levels?

Thanks.

They are part of the QC package, which is not included in SAS University Edition.

It may not be included in your license as well. Look for SAS/QC in your proc setinit output to see if you have the license.

proc setinit;run;

Thanks Reeza. I ran 'proc setinit;run;' and SAS/QC shows up in my log.

Then it wasn't installed properly Smiley Sad

I do believe it is an extra box you need to check if you're not working off a plan, but I haven't installed SAS in a few years now.

Thanks Reeza. I'm now having trouble uninstalling....  Posted it in the appropriate discussion board.
