Subject: Re: Scheduling SAS Batch Jobs - SOLVED
I received a number of good suggestions regarding this subject.
What I did was download a copy of the LaunchPad product as engineered by
Cypress Technologies [www.cypressnet.com]. It is available on a thirty-day
trial basis and is simple to use--very intuitive. Cost is $29.95.
On the LaunchPad command line I pointed to the !SASROOT directory on the NT
server and was able to execute SAS programs residing on either the Win95
local PC or the NT server.
Finito! Thanks to all who provided suggestions.
