Dear Stephen,

When I look in the log after clicking in the HOLAP registration, I see the same notes. In my case it is probably because I din't register any servers in my repository. As fas as I kwon _hps_ is the dataset with server information.

I encountered your problem while accessing holap via the Holap metadata class ( The method _saveMetadata() has the same effect. SAS told me that I shouldn't bother.

P.S. I have the same. So I wrote some SCL code to register my (dozens of)tables, after registering the first table with the mouse.

P.P.S. At the moment SAS Netherlands is checking out why, after my code ran, the Holap metadata is password protected. (I didn'd password protect it my self, neither by clicking, nor in my code.

Kind regards,

In V8 you register HOLAP data sources through the MDMDDB window. This has been so badly written by SI as to be almost impossible to use with a data source that uses a lot of SAS datasets because you have to tell it exactly the same pieces of information over and over again. E.g. you tell it AgentNo is yet again a Class variable as it was in every past dataset I have ever produced and will be in every future dataset I will ever produce - try doing that for 150 datasets and 20 variables!

However there is a batch utility that reads and writes metadata repository info so you can use datasteps etc to write out repeating information and then update the repository.

In using the MDP batch utility on a PC under Windows NT4 I got the following messages. Does any one know what the NOTES mean? Are they saying anything important?

Batch Metadata Utility: repository=giosdata rpath=w:\sascode\metadata\motordata textfile=d:\mdpin.txt mode=READTEXT

NOTE: Variable pwname is uninitialized. NOTE: Variable hpwr is uninitialized. NOTE: Variable hpww is uninitialized. NOTE: The data set HTMP._HPS_ has 0 observations and 4 variables. NOTE: DATA statement used: real time 0.13 seconds cpu time 0.04 seconds
