Subject: Re: Simple User Interface for SAS and INGRES database
Depending on the version of SAS - If you are on a windows platform it is easy:
SAS is ODBC compliant and setting up a SAS server you can use any Microsoft ( and other )
product that can read an ODBC compliant structure. SAS can read Ingres via the ACCESS to Ingres
product and the method is via SQL Passthrough code, in SAS 6.11 I have had great success with it.
My suggestion is to build an AF/Frame application that uses table viewers to read SAS members
and use the ACCESS to Ingres product to create temporary members that can be viewed in the
same way as normal sas members. This solution is workable in most SAS platforms.

Subject: Simple User Interface for SAS and INGRES database
I was wondering if anybody had any suggestions regarding a
third-party product that would give users an opportunity to
query our SAS and INGRES database. I was wondering about
SAS/ACCESS and EIS which might work well enough. But I
would like to be able to entertain other options.
