    Is this in specific situations or releases Harsh? So far I have not run into this issue – now I”m nervous I will.

  • Tricia Aanderud says:

    Yes – Chris – I have referred to that famous post of your before! Thanks for writing it because it helped me understand some fine points about the libraries. Your book SAS for Dummies also is helpful for learning more about SAS EG.

    Thanks Ian … I have the opposite problem – remembering I have to use the SMC. I’m use to BASE SAS where I’m pretty sure with a few well place macros and PROC TakeOverGlobe – I’ll really have some good posts. ;-)

    That’s a really great tip. I’ll admit to programming my brain to always use SMC for updating metadata libraries.. Will give this a go since it definitely is a time saver. Looking forward to reading your book when it comes out.

  • Tricia, great post and thanks for bringing attention to this capability. As other readers have already commented, there are some tricks to working with SAS metadata libraries. I’ve compiled a couple of comprehensive papers on the topic, one for 9.1.3 and one for 9.2/9.3.

    Nice Post!!!!!
    please also make sure that the assignment method of library is sas EG else it won’t update..

    Nice Post Tricia.. But one thing also come’s into consideration about the assignment method of Library in case of SAS Enterprise guide.If the assignment method is Metadata, It won’t let you update the table .u’ll have to change the assignment method to SAS Enterprise Guide in order to update it..
    Since I had Faced this situation I used this trick Hope that helps!!!
