SAS Studio in SAS Viya. Latest release information. SAS Studio 3.8 on SAS 9.4M6. Experimental support for Git integration. Ability to append new log information to the existing logs for programs and tasks. You can also automatically clear the log each time you submit code. I was using University Edition. Just upgraded virtual box, have made no other changes. Now I can't find my files! I know where they are on my laptop, just can't figure out where SAS Studio wants them to be so I can move them there.

How It Works

SAS Studio is an interface to the SAS server running on the WRDS environment. It provides a web-based interface allowing you to browse WRDS data, write and submit SAS programs, and review your SAS log from running programs. It looks very similar to the SAS application you might have installed on your PC, but offers the following benefits:

  • Runs in a Web browser which means you can access it from anywhere: Windows, Mac, Linux
  • Runs on WRDS servers, so has direct access to all WRDS data (fast!)
  • Easily upload or download your data right from your browser.
  • Provides 10GB of storage space in your WRDS Cloud home directory, and up to 500GB storage space in your institution's shared scratch directory.

Sas Studio Download For Mac
