SAS Data library history


Hi All,

We have just realised that someone has deleted a SAS dataset from one of the assigned(shared) SAS library. Is there a way we can identify who has deleted it.

Something like generating userwise history of making changes in that library.

SAS tables are just operating system files, and most probably not traceable by SAS (unless you use META libname, or SPD Server).

You could check with the OS admin to see if they can track file deletions.

thanks LinusH for your response!

I will check with my OS admin to track this.

PS: files that are saved under that library are not stored in system, these are saved in a unix location.
