Dear Statalist Members,

Thanks to Kit Baum, my Stata package -saswrapper-
has been updated on SSC.  It's more likely to find your
SAS 9.2 executable now that the sub-module sasexe.ado
has also been updated. My other programs that use sasexe.ado
to find your SAS executable will work fine when -sasexe- is
updated.  It will also fail more gracefully when the "usesas"
option is specified and the submitted SAS code has a SAS error in it which causes SAS to no cough up a SAS dataset for -saswrapper-
to load into Stata after the SAS code has finished running.

-saswrapper- is a great way to quickly run some SAS code on your
Stata dataset that's in memory and see the results in your Stata
results window.

NOTE:  -saswrapper- calls SAS to run the SAS program.  This requires the
ability to run SAS on your computer.

Here's the help page in html format:

-saswrapper- uses my Stata programs that transfer data between SAS and Stata:
-savasas- and -usesas-.  My SAS macro STATA_WRAPPER runs Stata code from
within SAS and is downloaded with -saswrapper- and -usesas- when they are

Also, by installing -saswrapper- you will be updating my programs that transfer data between SAS and Stata as well.

Let me know if you have any questions or feedback,
