Thanks to Mike, Don, Ravi and Sig for your valuable tips on SAS/Intrnet. At this
point we are inclined to go with the MDDB report viewer, and not Appdev studio.
From your tips, I am still unclear where the SAS/Intrnet should be installed -
Web (NT) server or the Unix server where the data resides. Don and Ravi think
Unix is a better choice, while Sig would go with the NT. The MDDBs we have are
pretty large, about 3 to 4 million obs. Putting SAS/Intrnet on the NT would
certainly be a cheaper option, but we would probably have to install SAS on the
machine too. And, as Don pointed out, it will have to stream the output back to
the browser. We will just have to figure this one out. Again, thanks for your
advice - I really learnt a lot in this discussion.
