Tip Promoted: I hate to be promoting my own tip, but this one got 3 approvals as of 4 months ago but still hadn't been promoted. --Art T 12:13, 29 November 2011 (EST)


Should add SAS/AF to the flags since adapting the the solution proposed, will call for that module in the licence. Of course without that, a macro could have been offered avoiding SAS/AF.

I like the idea which has not been demonstrated- have the app pop up and offer the chance to see the total number of rows in the table and input a limit (perhaps defaulting to 500). Bonus points to those who offer both SAS/AF and base SAS solutions. Richard Devenezia demonstrated how to surface such dialogs in windows message boxes using sascbtbl. (iirc)

@Peter: Help me out here (its been 3 years since I wrote the tip and may well have forgotten something. I don't recall anything in this tip, or the paper is references, that required SAS/AF. As I recall, everything it suggests can be done solely in base SAS --Art T 15:00, 7 June 2014 (CDT)


Sorry Art my comment should have been attached to tip of today. 7 June


Sorry Art. My comment should be attached to a tip which called yours. See [[1]]


@Peter: FWIW, compiled AF programs DON'T require licensing SAS/AF to run .. only if you need to modify them. A number of the built-in menu routines are, in fact, compiled SAS/AF routines. --Art T 17:19, 7 June 2014 (CDT)
