Re: Classical viewer vs Modern viewer comparision

You may want to look at the SAS support notes and read the known issues with the modern viewer at support.sas.com. There are also known limitations as documented at http://support.sas.com/kb/58/945.html

 

These other notes may also be useful to know:

Also search this Visual Analytics community on modern and classic viewer as this topic has been discussed a few times. 

 

Kind Regards,

Michelle

What IE version are you using? We have used IE 11 a lot with VA, both modern and classic, without getting the out of stack error.

I suggest you track this issue to SAS Tech Support as they would be in the best position to help.

 

The Classic viewer has been around a lot longer so is likely more stable than the modern one. A lot of users stick to Classic because of the Modern limitations, like no export to Excel for example.

Please read the first hyperlink on limitations that I provided above - http://support.sas.com/kb/58/945.html

 

Here you will see that Export to CSV or Excel is not supported in the Modern viewer. It outlines the actions and features that are not supported.

 

Kind Regards,

Michelle
