As the first step in the decommissioning of sasCommunity.org the site has been converted to read-only mode.
Here are some tips for How to share your SAS knowledge with your professional network.
As part of the decommissioning effort for sasCommunity.org this article/tip has been migrated to communities.sas.com.
The new home for this article/tip is PROC Delete (https://communities.sas.com/t5/SAS-Communities-Library/PROC-Delete/ta-p/475178)
PROC Delete data = Libref.DataName; PROC SQL; drop table Libref.DataName; quit; PROC Datasets library = Libref; delete DataName; run; DATA _Null_; length dd $8; rc = filename(dd,cats(pathname('Libref'),'\DataName.sas7bdat')); rc = fdelete(dd); put _all_; run;
Previously.Old.News.Note: Proc Delete is/was officially deprecated; you could not get help from Tech Support about it, prior to 2013.
