I am using filename FTP statement in a SAS program to upload files to a server; So far the files were small, like 30-150 records and it went smoothly;
Now I had to load a file with 2700 records (size 42kb), and the file was not uploaded; The process tries to upload, and then nothing happens, even after after 30-40 minutes; I had to terminate the program;
I am using SAS 9.1.3 on Windows XP;
I was able to upload the same file using DOS based FTP commands though;
So, I was wondering if filename FTP has any limitations?..I was not able to find this information any where, please comment;
No FILENAME with FTP engine limitations that I have experienced. Also, the file size you mentioned is not very large. I use SAS FTP processes with many gigabytes of data, regularly between different OS platforms.
Share the code you are using for additional insight.
