Hi Rain,

In V8 you can try the code that I've pasted to the end of this message. To try my code, just make sure you have a c:\temp\eisreg_playarea, else change the assignment of the libname in the code.

The code will register the SASHELP.PRDMDDB mddb in the repository at "reposname". It will then remove the registration for the mddb, and then delete the repository. You didn't ask for the latter two actions, but it makes the demo complete!

Some items to note.

-- Run the program as an AF application, i.e. ==> AF C=lib.cat.entry.SCL

-- The macros are not necessary, but I find they help

-- I couldn't find a path through the EIS documentation to the resenv class, but if you find it in the SAS explorer and right-click you'll get the documentation for it. Among other things, it creates the EIS environment for you and saves running your application with ==> RUNEIS APPL=blah.blah.blah.AF

-- The 8.1 version of SAS/EIS has one or two non-optimal features in it (classic British understatement), viz the need to terminate the EIS environment and then re-start it before attempting the deletion of the repository

Good luck

Hope this helps
