Storage Features

Specifying the Storage Catalog

To specify the name of the storage catalog, use one of the following general forms of the STORAGE= option in the RESET statement:

RESET STORAGE= catalog;
RESET STORAGE= libref.catalog;

Each time you specify the STORAGE= option, the previously opened catalog is closed before the new one is opened.

You can have any number of catalogs, but you can have only one open at a time. A SAS data library can contain many IML storage catalogs, and an IML storage catalog can contain many entries (that is, many matrices and modules).

For example, you can change the name of the storage catalog without changing the libref with the statement

   reset storage=mystor;
To change the libref as well, use the statement
   reset storage=mylib.mystor;
