How SAS 9.4 config and autoexec files fit together


About the webinar

A SAS administrator often needs to make adjustments to SAS to suit the particular demands of their organisation. But a SAS 9.4 metadata-based environment has many files which affect its behavior, some with identical names. It's important to know which ones you should be editing and which ones you should leave alone (and what can go wrong if you alter the wrong one).

What you'll learn:

  • Where to find the files
  • How the files fit together
  • How to pick which one to change
  • Autoexec vs. Config: what's the difference?
