What's New in the SAS/ACCESS 9.1 Interface to ADABAS


Prior to SAS 9.1, the ADABAS engine could not process a WHERE clause and ISN option. The ADABAS engine read all of the records in the ADABAS table and returned the records to SAS, then applied the WHERE clause.

Now, the ADABAS engine issues an L1 command to the ADABAS, table that enables ADABAS to process the WHERE clause and ISN option. With this method, only one ADABAS record is read instead of the complete table, which results in a performance enhancement.
