As the first step in the decommissioning of sasCommunity.org (see the What's New section below) the site has been converted to read-only mode.
Welcome to sasCommunity.org |
A collaborative online community for SAS® users worldwide.
sasCommunity.org is an ongoing global community effort—created by SAS users for SAS users. This site is a place to find answers, share technical knowledge, collaborate on ideas and connect with others in the worldwide SAS Community. Get started now by creating a UserID.
sasCommunity Tip of the Day
The STPBEGIN macro, used in SAS Stored Processes to generate the ODS statement based on the client (e.g., a Web browser, SAS Enterprise Guide, SAS Add-in for Microsoft Office, etc.), does not have an option to specify the TITLE attribute for HTML output. However, you can use the _ODSOPTIONS global macro variable to specify a browser title by setting the value before the STPBEGIN macro call as follows:
%let _ODSOPTIONS = body=_webout (title = "Title Goes Here");
You need to specify body =_webout, which is the default value for streaming output, in order to force the title to be inserted in the right place in the ODS statement. If not done this way, an error will be generated. This only works for the HTML destination and only with the SAS Stored Process Server.

sasCommunity.org 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 sasCommunity.org 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 sasCommunity.org – 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
- sasCommunity.org Planet (blogs aggregator)
- Several unique and very popular articles
Some of this content may be relocated to the SAS Support Communities (communities.sas.com) 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!
