Version 8 of SAS/ACCESS Interface to CA-DATACOM/DB software communicates with
base SAS software using a Version 6 compatibility engine. The compatibility
engine enables you to create SAS/ACCESS views that are compatible with Version
6 and to use data that is stored in Version 6 format without converting the
data to Version 8 format. For more information about the compatibility engine,
see SAS Language Reference: Concepts.
- The interactive windowing interface is not supported. You can
no longer create and update access descriptors and view descriptors by using
the Access Descriptor and View Descriptor windows. You must create and update
access descriptors and view descriptors by using a line-mode interface.
