(Experimental Release 4.1 - MAY 2007)
This package contains a new task that reports on and updates library metadata using the METALIB procedure. It replicates some of the function of the Import Tables feature in SAS Management Console.
SAS libraries that are defined in metadata can contain definitions for tables (SAS datasets or views) that reside in those libraries. Some SAS BI applications (such as SAS Information Map Studio) hold it as an absolute requirement that those tables are registered in metadata before they can be used.
Other applications that utilize the META libname engine, such as SAS Enterprise Guide and SAS Add-In for Microsoft Office, can use metadata libraries in a special mode such that tables that are physically present in the library are automatically surfaced. By default though, these applications show only those tables that are registered in metadata.
The typical methods for registering tables are:
