one could "rsubmit" a step one line at a time and it won't "run" until a "run;" statement is rsubmitted (but it is hard to see when that would help) .
Here it looks like "sasnewbee" wants to write to the file in the server, directly.
Unfortunately there seems no equivalent to "remote library services" for files - unless the filename engines URL or FTP might help .. Of course the server hosting the sas connect server may not support these alternatives.
Additional alternatives to consider are sas integration technologies and sas intrnet both now part of the EBI platform ...
... anyone care to offer examples of these alternatives ?
I agree it would be easier to write to the SAS server location directly from the PC. If the server were running Windows this would be dead easy as the file location would become:
It looks like the server is running Unix judging by the directory name so unless the server has NFS (Network File System) enabled, I suspect for someone new to SAS a single remote submit uploading the data and writing it is going to be the simplest approach.
