Import Yelp Academic Dataset into SAS

Hi, I want to analyze the Yelp Academic Dataset in SAS. Yelp provides the data in different formats, one of which is .sql

Data is available here:

https://www.yelp.com/dataset/download

How can I read the filed into SAS?

A .SQL file is a text file but there is no method that I know of to have that read into SAS automatically. Open a part of the text file in a text editor and you'll see why. It has the create table statements and insert table statements embedded. You can convert it to SAS SQL with minimal effort, but the size of the files are problematic. If you have SAS 9.4 TS1M5 perhaps JSON with the JSON libname is a better option?

Re: Import Yelp Academic Dataset into SAS

Thank you very much for the help. I opened the files and as you said, they are not the typical SAS readable files.

I can use the JSON files, but still, I do not know how to use SAS to read them. Do you have any tips for that?

I googled "SAS JSON LIBNAME" and found this:

I do not have SAS 9.4 TS1M5 so I've never used it.
