One of the papers I regularly recommended to administrators of SAS® Enterprise Guide was TS-788 What SAS® Administrators Should Know about Libraries, Metadata, and SAS® Enterprise Guide 4.1 (PDF), especially for its discussion of the AssignMode extended attribute.
Thanks to a recent post by Chris Hemedinger on The SAS Dummy blog, I’ve discovered that there’s now an updated version of it available: What SAS Administrators Should Know about Libraries, Metadata, and SAS Enterprise Guide (SAS 9.2, SAS Enterprise Guide 4.2 & 4.3) (PDF).
It’s well worth a read and has a great FAQ section at the end. It also mentions METAOUT=DATAREG – new in SAS 9.2.
BTW, if you’re a SAS platform administrator who supports SAS Enterprise Guide users, and you’re not already a reader of The SAS Dummy, I’d definitely recommend adding it to your RSS subscriptions.
