Hi, I am trying SAS University Edition. I found that some codes cannot be run with SAS University Edition. Here is an example of SAS log when I want to create lead values for some variables.

The following SAS/ETS procs are included:
TIMEDATA, TIMESERIES, ARIMA, ESM, UCM, and TIMEID
PROC TIMEDATA is especially flexible, and you can probably use it to accomplish similar work to PROC EXPAND.
Alternatively, try SAS OnDemand for Academics -- hosted by SAS, this environment supports all of the SAS/ETS procs and more.

I'm sure when I've looked at SAS OnDemand for Academics before you had to be a teacher or student at an "accredited" body but looking now it seems independent learners can use it. Is this a recent change?

Hi @ChrisBrooks - yes, any learner can use SAS Studio on SAS OnDemand for Academics. No university or course affiliation is required.
To use SAS Enterprise Guide, SAS Enterprise Miner, or SAS Forecast Server on the environment, you do need to be a teacher or part of a registered class.

I like to hear that. You didn't hear it from me, but you could register as an instructor and get access to download EG, exploring it for your own mentoring/teaching activities. The version you get is pinned to the SAS OnDemand for Academics environment, and I don't think you can use it at the same time as a commercial version. Also, some of the EG capabilities are "turned off" while connected to this environment.

Thank you very much! I got an ID for SAS OnDemand now (never known before). Another concern is that whether data uploaded to SAS OnDemand are confidential?

@tritringuyen:I'm sure it's spelled out in the terms of service, but you should not upload sensitive data to the SAS OnDemand for Academics environment. This area is for learning purposes and while data you upload isn't generally shared or accessible by other users, SAS does not promise rigorous security around these data files.
SAS offers "professional grade" hosting for companies with a much more secure/certified environment.

@ChrisHemedinger thank you very much! I suppose that my data is not sensitive. However, I collect data for my research. I want to retain the copyright of those data. I read terms and conditions already, but I am not sure about how my data are used by SAS company.
