SAS V9.1 SQL table name re-use issue
Hi everyone, Before SAS 9 I have lots of SQL codes that re-uses an existing table name and there was no warning msg. -------------------------------------------------------- data A; do i = 1 to 5 ; x= ranuni(0); output ; end; run; data b; do i = 1 to 5; y=ranuni(0); output; end; run; proc sql; create table a as select a.*, b.y from a, b where a.i = b.i; quit; ---------------------------------------------------------- Now in SAS 9, I will get this warning every time: 14 15 proc sql; 16 create table a as 17 select a.*, b.y 18 from a, b 19 where a.i = b.i; WARNING...

Re: Names of things (was Re: [SAS-L] external security managers a nd SAS)
Jack: I have used the term 'cell' to refer to the row/column intersection instance of a 'relvar' (relational variable). I would define a cell value as a relation of degree 1 and arity 1. An empty relation would have degree 1 and arity 0 (a column variable heading but no rows). In comparisons of different relvars in SQL, say, WHERE x=(select x from y where z), we have to name the type of yield of the subquery. I see no reason to avoid the name 'cell'.

Re: RE : SAS/ACCESS: How do you determine existence of a table using DB2 pass-through?
Hi, Datametric. Thank you so much for responding to all my new year's questions. I had kind of been hoping that it would be as easy to determine table existence as executing a %sysfunc(exist(db2libref.mytable)), and in fact it is, but there's a trick to it. When I first tried it, it didn't seem to work for me. Here's how I did that: libname dbln db2 database=xdb user="id" using="password"; %let tex1 = %sysfunc(exist(dbln.tbl1)); %* this table exists; %let tex2 = %sysfunc(exist(dbln.tbl2)); %* this table does not exist; %put tex1 = &tex1.; %put tex...

Re: Emailing SAS Graphs using the pull down option -- SAS 9.1 #5
David Many thanks for the reply. I, too, have no love for BMPs and when offered the opportunity, save graphics files in more compact formats. While our internal email will allow me to send such porcine files, our limits on stored email will often cause problems. I have had a couple replies from tech support and they, of course, said that I have two alternatives: 1) use the feature as it now stands: select email from the drop down and send it as a bmp with a default name 2) use the export feature where I have complete control and then create the message on my own and attach the...

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 e...

Re: Emailing SAS Graphs using the pull down option -- SAS 9.1 #6
I don't see it as derailing the conversation, when the original poster wanted to be able to change file names to meaningful values. Rather than viewing this goals as a whimsical desire, it is appropriate to testify as to the necessity of providing this feature so that those involved in deciding whether the change will be made can be persuaded to view it with appropriate seriousness. The decision to list the change lies with SAS, the decision to vote for it as a change rests in the SAS user community. So I think it is eminently relevant. The increase in the range of candidate files type...

David Alas, but your knowledge of vulgar American idioms does seem to be sufficient to handle normal locker room conversation. You did, indeed, recognize my reference. If they shoot the messengers, do they also shoot those who accurately predict unfortunate future events? If so, I suggest that you start digging a foxhole. I, too, view any attachment from an unknown source as suspicious and I have noted a sudden spate of these in the past month or two. It seems like two or three are now coming in daily.
