Accessing data in SmartValue

[ Edited ]

How can I use SAS to read data that resides in a cloud-based storeage program?  I am trying to read data that is stored in a package called SmartValut (like Dropbox).

I currently read data from a FTP site but it has been moved to this SmartValut package.

 

Thanks. Samuel

Not sure what SmartValue is but if you have a path to the file that's public you can use the methods here:

Basically FILENAME URL is what you want to search for, I believe there is a way to get to secured files but I don't know how off the top of my head.
