Does anyone have experience using HDF5 ODBC Connector with SAS?

 

From other responses to HDF5 queries I can see that both SAS/JMP and the SAS/R/IML interface will allow SAS access to HDF5 data. In addition respondents have noted that HDF has an export dump into ASCII or .csv files.

 

My question concerns the HDF ODBC Connector which allows SAS to directly access HDF5 files, or so the HDF Group claims.

The HDF product costs $1,000. So before I shell out the dough, does anyone have any direct experience in using this product to connect SAS with data stored in HDF5 format?

You would also need SAS/ACCESS to ODBC. The connector alone won't work in SAS programs. Would be worth checking with SAS Tech Support also.
