The header used to be a link.

The documentation's navigation options, formatting, and direct page access when hitting F1 had worsened with version 9.

You can click on the Locate button in the upper left of your window under the View menu.

If you searched on the Open function and it is open in the right column, select Locate. The Open function will be highlighted in the left column under Dictionary of SAS Functions and Call Routines. It's then easy to navigate to other functions or call routines.

I want links in the 'see also' section to what you can do once you open a data set.

Yes SAS's help could be a lot better. It is worse in V9 than in V8. Better work on the content than on a tablet version as suggested elsewhere imho.

SAS has long had pretty good documentation, and not so good indexing, cross-referencing, and searching.
