The Projman Window is the initial window opened by the Projman application.
When you start the application, all currently defined projects are listed in this
window. To view an existing project, select the desired name in the
project list and press the Open button. Projects can be opened with either
read or update access.
When a new or existing project is opened, a Project Information window
is displayed. Individual project data can be manipulated from that window.
The project list contains a list of all projects that are defined to the application.
Pressing the Quit button exits the Projman application. If projects are
open with update access and changes have been made,
you are prompted to save changes.
Pressing the New button creates a new project and opens that project with
update access. A default project name (Projectn,
where n is an integer) is
automatically generated and added to the project list.
When creating a new project, you are prompted to select the library where the
project data is to be stored. After you select a library, the
Project Information window is opened.
Pressing the Open button opens the selected project with read or update access.
The access level is determined by the current setting of the
Open Mode option. In order to save modifications to
a project, you must open the project with update access. While you have a project
open with update access, other users are only able to obtain read access to that
Pressing the Copy button copies the selected project. When copying a project, you are
prompted to select the library where the project data is to be stored. You are also
required to specify a unique project name. The new project name automatically appears
in the project list.
Pressing the Delete button deletes the selected project. In order to delete a
project, you must be able to obtain update access. In other words, no other
user can have the project open with update access.
This option is used to toggle the display of project library names within the
project list. The library name indicates the library
reference to the SAS data library where a particular project's data is stored.
If a project's library reference is not defined, Projman is unable
to open the project.
When this button is pressed, the Projman Options window is

The Open Mode option is used to specify whether projects are to be opened with
read or update access. When a project is opened with read access, you
may modify a working copy of the project data, but you are unable to save
those changes when the project is closed (although you can use the Save As
feature to save the modified project as a different project).
When a project is opened with update access, no
other Projman session can open that same project with update access; however,
read access would be available. It is necessary to use update access if
you want to save changes to the current project.
For different users to have simultaneous read access to the same project,
SAS/SHARE software is required. Note that only one user can have update access
to a particular project at a particular time. Access level does not affect the ability
to produce project reports.
