A week ago, I asked this list about a problem with 9.2: When you click "help" it runs an index, but it doesn't save the index when you quite SAS, so, each time you quit SAS, you lose the index.
Replies received here did not work, so I wrote to SAS.
They said, essentially, that it's a known bug, and they are working on it.

The PGM is the editor window up through v6.12
but also still exists today.
For the Enhanced Editor you can use:

I downloaded phase 2 a couple days ago and today I decided to install it
on a test machine. It did not go smoothly. At one point I did have SAS
working and could run programs, but the install process was very
perplexing. Here are some observations.

If you run SAS in batch mode the dir the .sas file is in will by default be
the dir where the .log and .lst files will be left.

...Re: SAS/Warehouse Administrator Problem?? or SAS/ACCESS problem?? #2
What's the question? I know it you presented it earlier, but you can't
expect people to find the pieces of a problem and put them together.
Look at the various intermediate results and find the point where they
first diverge from what is expected. Then look at the code which generates
that particular result. De-macroize that code and prepare some test data so
that anybody can run it easily. Then present that isolated version of the
problem (if the answer has not already emerged during this process).

Test preparation is akin to following a simple algorithm:
1. Evaluate the test and discover if it is worth taking.
2. If #1 evaluates false then go to exit.
3. Determine if your *test* knowledge of SAS is insufficient.
4. If #3 evaluates true, do the test preparation.
5. Pay the money.
6. Take the test.
From your standpoint, the step of paramount importance is step #1. That is
where you mainly failed. From SAS' standpoint, only one step matters: #5.
This is the only reason the test was created in the first place.
