on unix, you might discover with ( aix /Korn shell) system command fuser -u filename Here is an example generating the full path and low case table name filename inuse pipe "fuser -u %sysfunc(pathname(<libref>))/%lowcase(<memname>.sas7bdat" ; To check output from the command, try it first with a datastep like data; infile inuse ; input ; put _infile_ ; run; Output is like /path/filename: processID(userID) So you could try data; infile inuse ; put _infile_ ; input ; If scan( _infile_,2,':') ne ' ' then do; length locker P_id $16. locker = scan( _infile_, 2, '()' ); P_id = scan( _infile_, 2, ':(' ); Put "send rude messages to "he who holds the data' =" locker= p_id= ; output ; end; run;

And then you know who to speak to !

Good Luck Peter Crawford

Antwort an:

Betreff: macro code: How to check whether file is locked Nachrichtentext:

Dear all,

having tried with open and sysmsg - but not successful.

How can I check before writing to a sas file (sas7bdat) in macro code, whether this file is locked by some other user?
