SAS IT Module allows the communication between SAS and C# via the OLE provider
for instance. See the Alan Churchill site (www.savian.net) and always excellent
answers about the SAS/C# communication on the archive of SAS-L.
Otherwise, you can see some solutions outside SAS for the econometric analysis,
I think to Eviews, S+ or R, Stata ... it's less expensive.
Finally, if the price was not a brake, perharps you can see SAS Guide that
allows you to follow the wizard to build an analysis, but not to interpret the
results or think about before to start :-)
