To identify the LIBNAME or FILENAME statement for your course, do the following:
See Step-by-Step Guides for more information.
Additionally, instructors can register courses and select other software applications during the registration process. Users can be invited to register for these courses. Once either of these activities occur, links for the software associated with these courses will be available on a user's dashboard.
See Step-by-Step Guides for more information.
For step-by-step instructions, refer to the usage manual on the SAS® OnDemand for Academics Support Site.
If you forget your SAS Profile password or are concerned about whether it meets expected password strength criteria, see What should I do if I forget my password?
SAS recommends saving your work and exiting the SAS software application that you are using after completing your work. If you have an active session that is approaching six hours and you need to continue, save your work and exit the software. You can then start a new SAS session.
SAS is not responsible for any data or content that is lost due to session expiration.
After the software is installed on the lab machines, only registered users of SAS® OnDemand for Academics have the right to use it; these users must log on to the SAS Server using the credentials that were provided to them when they registered for the service.
We experience high registration loads during certain times of the school year. Staggering registrations helps ensure a faster and smoother registration process for the class.
Note: Staggering user log ins to the software can also ensure a better user experience versus having all students log in at the exact same time.
If you have forgotten your SAS Profile password, then follow these steps:
If you are unable to log on to a SAS® OnDemand for Academics software application that was previously working and you think that it has been approximately six months since you registered for SAS® OnDemand for Academics, then your current password might have expired.
To reset your SAS Profile password:
Alternatively, if you want a precise value instead of a percentage, then you can install and run a tool:
/courses/supportand then click Save.
To correct this issue, you must delete personal SAS files or data files that you no longer need:
You can log on to the Control Center to view the graph(s) of your personal quota usage. You might need to delete more files in order to create enough space to run SAS programs, create new projects or files, or upload additional data.
All users have up to 5 GB of storage for personal data files that they upload as well as for SAS programs created with SAS Studio. If you are a part of a course that uses SAS Enterprise Miner or SAS Forecast Server, then your project files are automatically stored on the SAS Server and count against your personal 5 GB storage quota.
The Upload feature within SAS Studio is used to perform file uploads. For more information about uploading course data or SAS program files, refer to the Step-by-Step Guides.
The color simply identifies whether the SAS Library was pre-assigned by the system (yellow libraries) or whether the library will be assigned after it is selected (white libraries). White libraries that are selected for use will become assigned and will turn yellow for the remainder of your session.
Supported operating systems should be run on a physical CPU as virtualized environments are not guaranteed to work.
If you have Microsoft Windows 7, then you must install a newer version of Microsoft .NET in order to use SAS Enterprise Guide. To access Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 or 4.5, visit the following site: http://www.microsoft.com/net
This setting may not function when using certain versions of Microsoft Internet Explorer or Apple Safari. Spaces are often used instead of tab characters in these Web browsers. If this is the case, then select the Substitute spaces for tabs check box within the Editor preferences.
Note: We recommend using a compatible keyboard with your mobile device for best results. Mobile device keyboards do work, but can impact available user interface space and appearance.
Apple Safari prompts you only when you sign out. If you exit the browser, close the browser tab, refresh the browser page, or navigate to a different browser page, Safari will not prompt you, and your unsaved changes will be lost.
Additionally, you can avoid refreshing your Web browser. This will result in a loss of any work that has not been saved. Most Web browsers provide a warning to let you know that your work will be lost if you choose to proceed with a page refresh/reload.
To resolve the file format compatibility issues between Windows, Macintosh, and Unix, you will need to include a FILENAME statement that uses the TERMSTR option.
If you are using a file created with the Microsoft Windows operating system, use the TERMSTR=CRLF option, such as in the following example:
FILENAME cars "/home/<username>/Projects/data/cars.txt" TERMSTR=CRLF;
If you are using a file created with the Macintosh operating system, use the TERMSTR=CR option, such as in the following example:
FILENAME cars "/home/<username>/Projects/data/cars.txt" TERMSTR=CR;
The file names and paths listed above are for example purposes only; your values might vary. For more information about SAS syntax, refer to SAS Studio Documentation.
Alternatively, if the file is large, your Web browser could be timing out or your wireless connection might not be ideal. Consider trying a smaller file size or verify that your wireless network is working properly.
