Is there any material for Mainframe SAS. Some tips and tricks to handle SAS in Mainframe. Specifically, SAS with JCL. I am hardly looking for this.

If anyone have an idea or link, please post your reply.

Thanks
Asohok K.

I am already aware of this site. This site is for SAS. But, I am specifically looking for Mainframe SAS (i.e. SAS with JCL).

Thanks

Review the SAS Companion for z/OS manual, available through your site SAS representative or the SAS web site.

If you were truly aware of this site, you would already know that all SAS manuals are available on it, and SAS specifically has companions for Windows, Unix, and z/OS platforms (among the many manuals they have).
