Thank you for your suggestion. Unfortunately this is not a roll back SAS plans on making. As an alternative you can find the link to our documentation online which comes in pdf form. These pdfs can be downloaded and brought to computers of this nature.

I agree with having the help available locally.  If users search the help within SAS they can retrieve out of date information and be unaware of this (as users do not necessariliy know the version numbers of all the products they use, nor do they necessariliy note the version number of the help information they retrieve from within SAS).  Users would expect the information they retreive when they search within help to be up to date (the screen shot below shows it is not as 14.2 is the latest).

Definitely agree that the help needs to be made available locally.  It is not logical to be able to search on the help and find answers that are in fact out of date and refer to an old version of SAS.  The help within SAS should be up to date and available locally.
