Subject:      SAS viewer


When I open a SAS dataset (on NTFS) with the SAS System Viewer (V6 or V8) ( I only have READ access to this dataset), the Viewer will still lock the file for update access. This is very annoying if many people have READ access to data, but the owner wants the update the dataset. He or she first has to find out who has the dataset open (only an Admin can find out).

Is there a way to open datasets with the System Viewer in such a way that the data is not locked?

Thanks, Lex jansen
