    Title:
    SASEFAME Interface Does Not Work In Multiple Executive Environment

    Keywords:
    FAME SASEFAME PROC DATASOURCE MULTIPLE EXECUTIVE ENVIRONMENT ETS

    Multiple SAS executives can be run in SAS/SHARE, SAS/IntrNet, and IOM.
    However, any attempt to use the SASEFAME Interface in a multiple
    executive environment may produce unexpected results.

    The SASEFAME Interface should not be used in this environment, as
    it is possible the integrity of the resulting SAS data set could
    be compromised due to the interface's inability to operate in a
    thread-safe API.

    The only way to prevent this is to use a single-threaded
    execution of SASEFAME.
