no, there is no way with SAS as far as I know. PW protection is
implemented only for SAS datasets, no way to protect external files. A
thing you can do, is to use a standard compression utility (I'm not sure
what there is under UNIX) like WinZIP which supports password protection
for archives. There should be tools under UNIX you can use. Perhaps here
somebody knows one?
Or you send the files to a PC and do it there. If the receivers of the
report don't have UNIX, that might be the best way.
