Chapter 6: The CATALOG Procedure

Overview: CATALOG Procedure

The CATALOG procedure manages entries in SAS catalogs. PROC CATALOG is an interactive, statement-driven procedure that enables you to

  • create a listing of the contents of a catalog

  • copy a catalog or selected entries within a catalog

  • rename, exchange, or delete entries within a catalog

  • change the name of a catalog entry

  • modify, by changing or deleting, the description of a catalog entry.

For more information on SAS data libraries and catalogs, refer to SAS Language Reference: Concepts .

To learn how to use the SAS windowing environment to manage entries in a SAS catalog, see the SAS online Help for the SAS Explorer window. You may prefer to use the Explorer window instead of using PROC CATALOG. The window can do most of what the procedure does.
