Subject: Can you close sas tables opened by someone else?
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1
I just a job with a small company that uses foxpro via DBMS/Copy to
generate sas tables.
One of our biggest problems is that our users ( non technical people
in our company ) often open sas tables and leave them open overnight
when these processes run. This prevents DBMS/Copy scripts we generate
with foxpro from updating those tables.
I don't how to program in sas ( and just a few lines of foxpro ), but
before I take the time to learn I was wondering if it was possible to
write a script that would close sas tables opened by anyone and
regardless of circumstances.
Thanks in advance for the info
