  1. Paul, Thanks for this useful Post.

    Can you also Post as to how one accesses the Metabound Library?


  2. Hi Prashant,

    Thanks, I’ll keep that in mind for a future post.

    For further info I’d suggest you have a read of the SAS 9.4 Guide to Metadata-Bound Libraries. Users of the metadata bound libraries don’t have to do much different – they can still code a libname statement or use a metadata based library as they did before – although they’ll need a connection to the metadata server to determine access. If they’re using a metadata aware application (such as EG, DI, AMO etc) then they should have that in place already. If they are running SAS DMS or batch jobs then they’ll need appropriate meta options set. As an administrator you’ll also need to make sure they have all the appropriate permissions too.
