Subject: Question about data-sharing
I have a question for all you SAS gurus.
If I have a SAS table that is accessed by multiple users, what are the
consequence of more than one user attempting to access the table
simultaneously. I am more accustomed to database software like MS SQL and
SyBase which have page-locking capabilities to address such conflict. I notice
that SAS creates a temporary file when a table is being modified so I was just
wondering what takes place in the background.
