Subject: Re: user options
I have something that maybe can be compared with your situation (but then
different domains instead of different users).
We have the exact same SAS environment on different sites across the world.
Part of that environment is a central AUTOEXEC.SAS that everybody uses.
However there are some settings that are different across sites.
Instead of having a different 'central' AUTOEXEC.SAS' for every site, I made
a local AUTOEXEC.SAS next to the 'central' AUTOEXEC.SAS.
A site is defined by the DOMAIN (we are working on Windows).
So, the 'central' AUTOEXEC.SAS contains something like this:
(macro variable &_standrd defines the location of our standard SAS
environment on the server)
%PUT NOTE: No local AUTOEXEC file: AUTOEXEC_&qqdomain..SAS;
If you would replace the USERDOMAIN with USERNAME you could implement a
different AUTOEXEC for every user.
Like I said this is all Windows, but I hope it gives you an idea.
