SAS System Viewer 9.1 unable to open SAS datasets ( SAS 9.1.3)
SAS System Viewer 9.1 was able to open datasets that were created by
V8 engine (SAS 8.2), but is unable to open datasets that are created
with V9 engine (SAS 9.1.3).
Does this need SAS System Viewer to be upgraded ?
Something else needs to be done ?

SAS System Viewer 9.1 can:
(1) Read SAS v8 data sets created by SAS v8 on Windows or UNIX
(2) Read SAS v8 data sets created by SAS v9 on Windows
(3) Read SAS v9 data sets created by SAS v9 on Windows
SAS System Viewer 9.1 can not:
(1) Read SAS v8 data sets created by SAS v9 on UNIX
(2) Read SAS v9 data sets created by SAS v9 on UNIX
(1) There is a beta version of the CDISC Viewer that can be downloaded
from the SAS web site, but it is fragile.
(2) There is also a SAS Universal Viewer bundled with SAS v9.2 for

You heard wrong... check out sascommunity.org, there's a page there
somewhere that describes the differences.
The major things that make a difference to me are XLSX support and improved
hash support, but FCMP and ODS/Proc Template improvements undoubtedly make a
huge difference to many folks.

Dear SAS-L listers,
I have tried the following sas code in both SAS 9.1(PC sas) and SAS EG 4.1
connected to a SAS 9.1.3 server on a unix machine. I am getting totally
different results. Can anybody tell me why is this so? In SAS EG 4.1, I
used cards/datalines to input the data, then i get the same result as in
SAS 9.1(PC sas).
The table ID created by the program has missing values, when executed in
SAS EG 4.1. The same table ID does not have any missing values in PC sas.
Is there any options or steps which will make the program give the same
result, irrespective of PC sas or SAS EG 4.1.

Guys can you share all your experience you found out when you moved from
SAS 8.1 to SAS 9.1.3. I am planning to make contribution to a paper
(internal ). I know there are lot of new functions for both Character and
Numeric did you find any difference that you found using same functions
giving different results in 8 and 9 ? are there any know issues with stat
functions that would generate different results in 8 and 9, things I need to

I don't think that 1.3 GHz are the main problem. It will run smoothley,
but I think it will not be a great joy to work with 20 billions of records
with a slow notebook disc. Think that might be the bottleneck. If you work
with not too much records and have enough (at least 2 GB or more) memory,
that should run good. SAS normally is not too processor intensive,
depending on the complexity of your programs. For "normal" purposes you'll
see, that the processor will be no problem. Memory and the disc speed
might be more important.

...Re: Emailing SAS Graphs using the pull down option -- SAS 9.1 #4
I think this is what I would expect. There is no love lost between the
space on my hard drive and BMP files. I find them to be extremely
inefficient and prefer one of the compressed formats, selecting the level of
compression the task will bear. This also means I specify an output file
name and use an appropriate SAS/Graph driver for the output.
The default behaviour is useful only to demonstrate that the graph
generation works and that the email engine is correctly configured.
Depending on an approach that delivers bloat mails puts my work at risk of
not being read due to file sizes and email filtering rules. So in answer to
question 1; no.
Which means that my answer to question 2 is also no.
You should bear in mind though that I don't consider my work to be part of
the "average" community, especially when so many people are performing D & M
stat analyses, and a lot of others produce ad-hoc and one-off analysis and

I wouldn't worry too much about it ... GHz doesn't matter that much anymore,
compared to other elements. The U7700 is a pretty good CPU, hitting over
1000 on CPUMark06 (
example). It's slow because that decreases heat and decreases voltage
necessary; but it makes up for that with its transistor density, and being
dual core certainly doesn't hurt.
I agree though that the notebook disk is more of a problem - if you can
upgrade to a 5400 RPM drive at least that will be helpful (or possibly just
use external - I wouldn't be shocked to learn that an external 7200RPM over
USB2.0 is faster than a 4200 RPM notebook drive over any connection).

....and 9.1.3 has strong tools to fill up memory, if available. E.g you can
use hash objects for joining data instead of merge or SQL. Very fast, if
you have enough memory left. Have also a look on all the "important"
tools, which fill up your memory, to keep it free for SAS. Many of that
things are started when booting, but are unnecessarily. That hundreds of
things which are waiting for you to start a editor or a photo-book, or a
video tool are unnecessary. If you really need one of that tools, start
it. The resident programs only save some seconds for you, but they fill up
memory with nothing useful. Maybe also a virus- or spyware-scanner is
only necessary as long as you have a internet connection. Switch that off
as long as you don't need it. Your SAS programs will enjoy that. It is not
enough to have big memory, you must also keep it clean!
For fast disk access you might think about a external SATA disk which
might be much faster than a internal one. Think your notebook has a
external SATA - port?! Ok, not a good idea for your railway travel or
flight, but sometimes you might use the notebook at home or in office...
