SAS is running on Unix and they do have Share. However, when I tried to use the SAS/Share provider with OleDb, I got an extremely cryptic OleDb error that had no references on the web and no hit inside of SAS Tech Support. Hence, I am playing around with new ideas.

If you don't have SAS running anywhere at all, I don't have a clue. But if you have SAS on the UNIX side, you can run a SAS/SHARE server to expose libraries to the network and use the SAS-supplied ODBC driver and/or OLE DB data provider to do things list like.

The cool thing about this (to me) is creating SAS/Access views to other databases (with my database credentials) for cheap reporting.

I need some suggestions. Here is the scenario:

I have a single SAS dataset on a Unix machine. No Samba installed on this machine and I have been told no for getting it installed.

I have a .NET application on a Windows Server 2003. The .NET app needs to read in the SAS dataset. I have been told that we cannot use Windows NFS either.

How do I get to this dataset? Someone suggested using ODBC with an IP address but I have never seen that done before. Integration Technologies is not available and the SAS local provider needs a physical mapping to read it in via OleDb.

Any ideas?
