I am trying to dowload or directly read S3 files from AWS in a SAS BASE program. Is that possible?
I have found in documentation the procedure 'proc S3', but it's not avalilable in my SAS version.
Is there any other way to read or download S3 files to SAS??
I am working with SAS EG 6.1
Thanks in advance

6.1 would be 9.4, but perhaps an earlier maintenance level.
Upgrading within a major SAS release is usually not a very big task (depending on the nature of the installation of course).

SAS admins don't plan any upgrading coming soon...
If you can give a possible solution to download S3 files not with 'proc S3' I will be very gratefuk
Sorry for my english and thanks!!

I have read that is: 9.04M5, but I am not sure.....
I can't upgrade, becasuse admins don't plan do it....until.....I don't know....
Is there any other solution to connect SAS to AWS S3 and download files?
Thanks in advance

I think your version of SAS even predates PROC HTTP which would allow you to go against S3 REST APIs.
Consider doing it outside of SAS and bringing it in a delimited file or something else.

If the version is correct it should have PROC S3 Included as part of the Base Procedure which is most SAS installations.
What makes you think you don't have PROC S3?
If you're getting an error message post your code and log.

This is my log:
27 proc s3 ; ERROR: Procedure S3 not found. 28 create "/xxxxxxxx"; 29 run; NOTE: The SAS System stopped processing this step because of errors. NOTE: PROCEDURE S3 used (Total process time): real time 0.00 seconds cpu time 0.00 seconds

What's your output from a PROC SETINIT?
Are you sure your version is correct? Perhaps they didn't install it correctly?
I would consider contacting SAS tech support and talking to your IT area. If they've explicitly locked down access to S3 that's something you would need to be aware of before proceeding in my opinion.
