Re: import fastq format file

It looks like it's a text file,so you can use standard text processing. That being said, it also looks like a complex file.

 

If you need assistance, its best to post a sample of the file, attach it as a .txt file or post in the message.

Thanks I will try. Actually I used Enterprise Guide to import, and then copy the code to sas to get data set.
