Proc import in non-interactive mode

Hi Experts

If I have a SAS process which contains a proc import at certain point, I suspect that would not work in unix through putty, since it's running in non-interactive mode. One option is to to use -noterminal keyword while running it in unix.

Is there any global option which can be directly input in SAS script ( global options).

Thanks

proc import works fine in any SAS run mode as long as it can reference the location and file / database being imported. Have you tried it?

hi , yes, I tried and gave errors. I can provide the log as well. The thing is proc import in my process worked fine when I used -noterminal command.

A log would be helpful. Without it it's a hard to offer further advice.
