Hi SAS VA experts,
I am working for a bank and currrently created a number of reports and explorations in Developemnt/UAT folder (LASR) and now
I need to copy them to production along with changes to the datasource names(same dataset with production names).
I am doing this manually now ( copying to production folder and linking to production data source) and ought to do 100's of reports and explorations.
I would like to do this via program /script and automate this copying process.Could you please help and let me know your vaulable thoughts on this.
