SNOTES is an approximately daily email from SAS STech Support listing the new or changed usage notes since the last email.

Re: SASTip104
Hi All, A couple of additional tidbits: For 8.2, if the SASonlinedoc has been (separately) loaded, you typically get an entry in your Start/Programs/The SAS System/SAS OnLine Doc V8 a link to start it up. Additionally the: C:\Program Files\SAS Institute\SAS\V8\core\help\base.hlp\docloc.htm notates that you can add the supplied entries into your SAS configuration file to tie it in. For v9, the onlinedoc seems to be part of the load/install process. However, you certainly can create a Shortcut for example the "Index" tab portion of the onlinedoc by creating a shortcut icon to: &qu...

Graham , I am not sure that the SI Tech Support examples should have all the error checking that Chang wanted to throw in the macro. The examples should be clear concise and easy to read and get going, as well as be illistrative. Too much error checking in an example well is just over kill and even detrimental to an example. However, any code solution on the SI Tech Support web sit should follow basic rules of good practices and sound advice. Such as with thier macros having atleast a somewhat good Macro design.

Re: Updating the SAS Config file #2
Hi Peter, Many thanks for pointing me to the EG Forum. There's lots of good stuff there too. 1) Since I'm running the thin client of EG3, I'm not able to determine the actual location of the sas config file. Proc options points to a file that does not exist - I'm assuming it is masked since my SAS runs on the server. So my question becomes - is it possible to use my custom sas config file? 2) With EG running on the server, what is the recommended tool for automating some reports?
