Until yesterday, I thought that Proc Setinit was the way to determine
whether a product was installed but I then learned that this simply tells
us whether it is licensed. Ron Fehd posted the following which will tell
you more about your installed products. As I recall, ODBC may require an
extra step in the installation process and this may be skipped sometimes.
Ron's information follows:
I knew I had solved this problem once before.
set SAShelp.vOption(where =(OptName eq 'PATH'));
you might also try:
PROC SQL; select *
where OptName eq 'PATH';
you'll need to strip out the evar references and \sasexe

SAS ODBC engine
Please respond to
I am trying to access Interbase files through SAS, but I am having a
lot of problems. I do have SAS/ACCESS installed on my computer, as a
proc setint confirmed:
Product expiration dates:
---SAS/ACCESS Interface to PC
Here is my syntax:
libname files odbc "C:\Documents and Settings\smccabe\My Documents
and here is the error I get:
5 libname files odbc "C:\Documents and Settings\smccabe\My Documents
ERROR: The ODBC engine cannot be found.
ERROR: Error in the LIBNAME statement.
It just seems to be unable to find the ODBC functionality.
