SAS/ACCESS Software

This page summarizes compatibility issues for the SAS/ACCESS 9 interfaces. See also the What's New documentation.

Peaceful Coexistence of Multiple Versions

SAS/ACCESS software from multiple versions can coexist on one machine.

If you're still using SAS/ACCESS 8.2 and you update the environment to support SAS/ACCESS 9 calls, that might conflict with 8.2 calls. An example of such an update is environment variables. You can solve the problem by writing scripts that set the appropriate environment variables before SAS/ACCESS software runs.

Different versions of SAS/ACCESS software might have different third-party interface requirements.
