Unload an Imported table using Data Builder, Explorer or Designer

Hi everybody,

I'm using VA 7.4 and I would like to know if is it possible to unload a table loaded in memory with the so called "self-service" import using, for example, VA-Explorer or if it is necessary to use VA-Administrator. 

Thanks in advance and best regards,

Carlo

You can use SAS code as well to unload data. For example PROC DATASETS with a DELETE statement can be used to delete the table from LASR memory and PROC METALIB can be used to delete the metadata definition once the actual table is deleted.

Re: Unload an Imported table using Data Builder, Explorer or Designer

Hi SASKiwi, thanks for your quick answer!

Yes, I can use SAS code to load and unload data, but my question is slightly different.

My question is:

I can load data in memory with Visual Analytics Data Builder, Explorer and Designer (that are client for users, not for administrators).

Is it possible, with the same clients, to unload data (and delete metadata) or the help of an administrator is needed?

Think, for example, that I've loaded a wrong table and I want to eliminate it.

Thanks again and best regards,

Carlo
