sasCommunity Tip of the Day

You can verify that you installed SAS correctly and that it is operational using two tools supplied by the SAS Institute. The two tools are the SAS Installation Qualification Tool (SAS IQ) and the SAS Operational Qualification Tool (SAS OQ).

To quote from the SAS documentation:

  • The SAS IQ assists you in demonstrating the SAS System has been installed and maintained to the manufacturer's specifications. SAS IQ verifies the integrity of each file in the SAS System 9 and provides the customer a set of reports detailing the results.
  • The SAS OQ assists you in demonstrating the SAS System is operational. SAS OQ uses SAS programs provided by the component development groups and will execute, process, and report the program results.

To get more information on both of tools, including the platforms that they run on, see the see also links.

If you have a tough-to-please boss, or a regulatory entity looking over your shoulder, you may want to make using both of these tools an integral part of your SAS installation regimen.

What's New to be Decommissioned

December 7, 2017
Notice from the sasCommunity Advisory Team

Today, SAS practitioners have unprecedented access to expertise from their fellow SAS users around the world. Using modern community forums and code sharing platforms, SAS users are learning from each other more than ever before.

Although there is a demonstrated increased interest in SAS topics in general, we’ve seen the traffic and contributions on remain flat (and even decline) over the past few years. The team has taken the decision to help users to focus on the newer, well-supported platforms -- and decommission this wiki-based site.

Before we cover some logistics, we want to recognize the important role that – and all of its volunteers and contributors – has served over the past 10 years. The site pioneered peer-to-peer collaboration around SAS during an era when there were fewer alternatives. We are grateful to those who devoted countless hours to building and nurturing the site. Thank you!

Now…on to the future. Our first step will be to put the site into ‘Read Only Mode’ on January 1, 2018. This will allow the relocation of important and popular content responsibly, while eliminating the overhead of accepting new pages. We plan to support, as best we can, the owners of existing content to make sure they can find a new home for content and articles they want to preserve before the final decommissioning (that date is TBD).

Examples of content that we know that probably should be relocated:

  • Author Pages
  • User Groups pages
  • Historical Conference Proceedings
  • Planet (blogs aggregator)
  • Several unique and very popular articles

Some of this content may be relocated to the SAS Support Communities ( with the help of SAS Institute. Historical proceedings might find a home alongside the other proceedings we have for more recent SAS conferences. Code-based projects may be a better fit on GitHub, a site designed specifically for sharing code related to any technology. All ideas are under discussion, and we welcome your input.

Thanks for your valuable support over the years, and we look forward to continued collaboration!
