Great tip - looks good to me - ready! --Nancy 15:20, 2 February 2009 (EST)

But is the use of / in Windows documented? The only thing I could find in SAS manuals is that a directory location should be in the proper specification for that operating system and I interpret that to mean only \ is legally documented for Windows. PaulOldenKamp 23:25, 2 February 2009 (EST)

Yes - documented for Windows. Google finds many hits on this being valid. See the Wikipedia article on file paths.


An excellent TIP; Promoted. --Charlie Shipp noon, 3 February 2009 (EST)


Showing again today (Monday, 9-9-2013) it uses a subtle '/' at the end of the tip // nice touch! And it is a valuable TIP. — Charlie Shipp 11:06, 9 September 2013 (EDT)
