Yes, you need MXG 36.11 for CICS/TS 5.5 because fields were

inserted into SMF 110 CICSTRAN records and using old MXG will

have trashed values due to the misalignment, but MXG could run

and only print error messages, which might be false positives,

or could execute with no errors nor log messages, especially if

you have a tailored IMACEXCL, but your CICSTRAN dataset will

still be invalid.

Please read CHANGESS for the complete list of major enhancements.
See member NEWSLTRS or the Newsletters frame at http://www.mxg.com for

current MXG Technical Notes.

All of these enhancements are described in the Change Log, below.
II. SAS Version requirement information:
SAS Versions

The current version nomenclature is SAS 9.4 TS1M5 (9.4M5), "M5",

or "SAS 9.4 (TS04.01M5P09132017)" if the OPTION VERSIONLONG is

enabled.
Only on z/OS, SAS 9.4 "M5" requires MXG 35.36+ because it adds the

NOERRORSTOP option to protect all MXG PROC SQLs from the M5 defect

described in SAS Note 61672. But SAS apparently does not plan for

a defect correction since the MXG Circumvention solves for MXG and

the text of 61672 simply describes the circumvention needed because

MXG's use of OPTIONS OBS=0 without NOERRORSTOP exposed the defect.

See Change 35.309 for more details on using NOERRORSTOP for your

own PROC SQLs.
SAS V9.4 M5 is RECOMMENDED, but MXG executes without error

using SAS Version 9.4 M0-M2 or M4-M5 or SAS Version 9.3 M0-M2.


SAS V9.4 M5 is REQUIRED with z/OS 2.3 with Eight-Byte USERIDs

for Interactive TSO (DMS) SAS Sessions. SAS Note 61339.


SAS V9.4 M3 is NOT RECOMMENDED. See Change 36.128 SAS Note 61906

that reports 40% Increase in CPU time with M3.


SAS V9.4 (ALL) and SAS V9.3 (ALL) are at LEVEL A SAS Support.
SAS V9.3 SAS 9.3 TS1M2 was RECOMMENDED. SAS 9.3 TS1M1 works ok.

But SAS 9.3 at TS1M0, the HOT FIX for SAS Note SN-43828,

see CHANGE 29.169, IS REQUIRED:

The %MACRO compiler error is in processing %LET

statements. While only two MXG members failed

repeatedly in MXG QA tests on z/OS, there were random

%LET errors in ASCII QA tests, so ANY use of %LET

statement on ANY platform are vulnerable to this

error, as the %MACRO compiler is SAS portable code,

used on all platforms. So this is NOT just an MXG

error, but impacts ALL SAS programs.

SAS9.3 is LEVEL A support from SAS.

SAS V9.2 Was recommended, prior to 9.3, and was error-free with

MXG 26.03 SAS Hot Fix for SAS Note 37166 is required to

use a VIEW with the MXG EXITCICS/CICSFIUE CICS/DB2

Decompression Infile Exit. but SAS V9.2 does execute on

that platform.

9.2 is LEVEL B Support from SAS, as of Sep 30, 2013.

SAS V9.1.3 on z/OS 1.10 requires SAS Hot Fix for SN-35332 and is at

Support level C by SAS Institute, Sep 30, 2013.

SAS V9.1.3 is NOT supported by SAS on Windows SEVEN.

SAS V8.2 SUPPORT LEVEL C BY SAS INSTITUTE; NOT ALL OF MXG WORKS!

with SAS 8.2.

SAS 8.2 is Level C Support from SAS as of Dec 31, 2011.


JCL in MXGSAS94 or MXGSAS93 can be used, or MXGNAMES can be used
***************************************************************

As documented in Change 27.356, for SAS V9.2 or later):

The standard SAS JCL Procedure can be used for MXG with SAS V9.2+

// EXEC SAS,CONFIG='MXG.SOURCLIB(CONFIMXG)'

//MXGNAMES DD DSN=MXG.USERID.SOURCLIB(MXGNAMES),DISP=SHR

or you can continue to use the MXGSAS94 JCL Procedure example.

***************************************************************
MXG 26.03 thru MXG 36.11 will execute under the previously listed

SAS Versions on all supported platforms


Unrelated to the above SAS Note/Hot Fix, ODS users will want to

use MXG 29.06+, because SAS V9.3 did expose incompatibilities in

MXG code for ODS reporting, that were fixed in MXG Version 29.06.

See Changes 29.159 and 29.169.

And, only for z/OS 1.10 with SAS V9.1.3 with ANY version of MXG,

the SAS Hot Fix for SN-35332 is REQUIRED (to be completely safe).

Without this Hot Fix, "LIBREF XXXXXXXX IS NOT ASSIGNED" errors

can occur even though //XXXXXXXX DD is a valid SAS Data Library.

This error ONLY occurs with z/OS 1.10 and SAS V9.1.3; it does

NOT occur with SAS V9.2, nor with z/OS 1.9. It can be

circumvented by adding a LIBNAME statement that specifies the

ENGINE name. See the Technical Note in Newsletters for SN-35332.

Note that SAS V9.1.3 is now at "Level B" Support from SAS.
Old MXG code may continue to execute with SAS V8.2, but V8 is now

"Level C" support from SAS Institute, and there are known errors

in V8.2 that are only fixed in SAS V9. I no longer QA with V8.2;

While many MXG programs (accidentally) will still execute under

V8.2, I cannot guarantee that all of MXG executes error free.

PLEASE INSTALL V9.2/V9.3/V9.4, TO AVOID FIXED PROBLEMS!

If you are absolutely stuck on V8, you need to copy MXG member

V8GETOBS into USERID.SOURCLIB and rename to VGETOBS.


MXG Software has not executed under SAS V6 in many years.
The "PDB" libraries (i.e., SAS data libraries) must be created by

SAS V8 or later, but any of those data libraries can be read or

updated by the SAS Versions that MXG Supports, above.

For SAS Version V9.3:

SAS 93 TS1M1 is RECOMMENDED; for TS1M0, SAS Hot Fix in SAS Note

SN43828 is REQUIRED. See text of Change 29.159.

With SAS 93 TS1M1, (or TS1M0 with that Hot Fix) MXG Versions

26.03 or later execute under SAS V9.3 on all platforms.


SAS Data Libraries created by SAS V8.2, V9.1.3, V9.2, V9.3 and

SAS V9.4 are interchangeable and can be read/written by any of

those versions, provided they are on the same platform.

BUT: on ASCII, the 32-bit and 64-bit SAS versions are NOT the

same "platform" and attempting to read/use the FORMAT catalog

created on one of those "platforms" on the other "platform"

will error out to remind you of that difference!

SAS V9.4 did change some V9.3 ODS processing defaults and syntax

that might cause errors with MXG 29.05 or earlier; MXG 29.06,

Change 29.160 documents the major revisions made in MXG to fully

support ODS, and MXG 29.06 is STRONGLY recommended for ODS with

SAS V9.3 or SAS V9.4.


For (Archaic) SAS Version V9.2 (TS1M0):
Big Picture: SAS Version V9.2 is COMPATIBLE with MXG Software.
On z/OS, SAS changed the DSNAMES for some of the SAS libraries,

so you do need to use the new MXGSAS92 JCL Procedure for MXG,

but it still uses the CONFIGV9 configuration file.
****************************************************************

However, NEW, and documented in Change 27.356, with SAS V9.2+:

The standard SAS JCL Procedure can be used for MXG:

// EXEC SAS,CONFIG='MXG.SOURCLIB(CONFIMXG)'
