Subject: SAS SHARE Problem
We are experiencing problems using SAS/SHARE in conjunction with PROC
APPEND. According to the SAS documentation and the UK SAS helpdesk it
should be possible to perform an SQL/Data Step read on a dataset while
it is being updated by another client machine
using PROC Append as PROC append only requires record level locking.
(SAS/SHARE Software, Usage and reference Version 6 first edition page
In practice we have found that the reads always fail as PROC APPEND has
member lock on the dataset while it is running. Does anyone know if
this is an error in the
SAS documentation, or if it is likely to be something we have failed to
do at our end?
We are running SAS 6.12/TS055/Windows NT 4.0
Any help/suggestions would be warmly appreciated!
