Protecting SAS Datasets

I was wondering if there was a way similar to Excel, that you can put a password on a dataset so it can not be over-written or changed?

Just need a way to provide some security for certain datasets.

Search the SAS support http://support.sas.com/ website using this Google advanced search argument:

password protect sas datasets site:sas.com

There is SAS-hosted documentation and also supplemental technical and conference topic-related reference documents for review and use.

These tools, similar to Excel, do not protect you from a deletion from the OS.
