Modifications to use PC SAS instead of Mainframe SAS (Former subject: "PC SAS")
Since you are new to SAS, I would recommend that you modify the
mainframe SAS code slightly and use it on your PC. But, you will have
to reformat the Excel files and save them as text (without any column
headings) before running SAS. I will presume that the first columns of
your spreadsheets are the same as the mainframe data file. Test1 has
YR, ATYPE, OBJ, SOBJ and AMT and Test2 has OBJ, SOBJ and SNAME.
You want to adjust the column widths in Excel to match the SAS code and
save the Excel file as a text file. Column widths in Excel should be
set with "Format" > "C...Re: PC to PC
It is possible. Here are the things you do:
On the remote PC you should have SAS connect spawner
service running. Following are the steps on remote pc:
1. Include the following entry in
spawner 4016/tcp #SAS UNINX Spawner
2. Start service by running the following command:
-inheritance -service spawner
On the client pc run the following:
%let node=<remote pc name> 4016;
filename rlink �c:\program
This step will prompt you for userid and password.
After authentication you can now submit code on remote
pc within rsubmit and endrsubmit steps.
Hope this helps.

I have to synchronize the Palm databases on two PCs directly without the

Now, the desktop 4.1.4 has more data fields (e.g. in Adressbook) than the

special-order them (which always seems to me to mean a MRP or
above-average price and a long lag time).

Yes it's normal.

The question is how long yours PC is down. There may be some active

Also if there are some ports redirected to that PC the packets will appear.

In my limited experience, there are minor programming differences - you use
a forward slash instead of a backward slash in path names for example, and
case matters in file names for Unix but not for Windows. These are
operating system issues - how you specify the physical location of a file
varies with the OS.
The more noticeable differences are interface issues. SAS on Unix doesn't
have an application work space - the program, log, output, and other windows
of a SAS session are loose objects on the desktop, while on Windows these
objects are all collected within the application work space. I think this
is a SAS issue - I remember back in version 6 that SAS had an application
work space on Unix, and why it doesn't in version 9 is beyond me.

If you go this route make sure you have SAS/Connect module as you will want

I would have rather just stayed with the mainframe. YOu will need to teach
people the difference between server side and client side and how to write
and mod the existing programs accrodingly. Also you will need to be careful
with using macros and macro variables as you really have to understand when
things get resolved and when things get passed and how to pass a macro
variable from the client side to the server side.

I'm not aware of any differences in SAS.
For sure, there are some differences for external interfaces. E.g. there
are no drive letters in UNIX (C:\a\b\). Normally the path delimiters are
slashes (/) instead on back-slashes (\) in UNIX, but you can use both in

I agree that the days of large mainframe purchases are nearing their
end, but for a slightly different reason - licensing costs.
MVS is very expensive compared to Linux, and doesn't make up for the
increased licensing fees by reducing the need for support personnel.
In the case of SAS, you can buy a server license that's just big enough
to suit your needs, instead of a license for a machine where 99% of the
users will never invoke SAS, directly or indirectly.

Remember that EG is generating SAS code and then submitting it to a SAS server for execution; EG itself does not execute the code. If you hare seeing a 5-10 fold increase in execution time, I would suspect that your hardware/software are suboptimal for what you are doing. Another possibility may be network lag caused by having to move files on the fly.
Are your two programs (PC and EG) really the same? If they are, and you have eliminated everything within your power to control, then it may be time to start complaining vigourously to your management. A 5-10 fold increase is rediculous...

Our organization is migrating from PC-SAS to SAS-EG. It makes perfect
business sense as we are a huge organization and require too many licences.
We can have the server licence of EG for, say x, number of users. In this
way my company can also keep the count of all the licences which different
business units are using.
But the problem is that we find that EG is not performing so well in terms
of time taking to run codes as there is network lag, and the way EG handles
the data. I use some models for forecasting which takes me about an hour

I disagree. There is no way that a mainframe is stronger than a grid. A
mainframe can be part of a grid and hence is a subset. As an example, a
mainframe cannot do search queries faster than Google.
The old comparison of a PC and a mainframe cost-wise is out of date. Today's
PCs can be extremely safe and maintainable, they are fast in every measure,
and they provide a much better user experience. Wall clock time, my guess is
that the jobs will also run faster. With quad-core PCs available by this
Christmas running virtualization, you could have an 8 way on the desk,
