I try to infile a sas file (CRF.sas) to sas using the following code. The output dataset is “Want”.
infile "C:\Users\weig3\Desktop\CRF.sas" ;
input col $ 1-300;
The CRF.sas contain 6 line as below
The “want” contains only 4 line as below
It sounds the line “data data1 (label=”Demographics”);” is missing( Please see attached file for details.)
Could anyone help me to avoid the error?

If you want us to test it, you should upload the text file. To test it, I'd have to type it out and I don't do that on principle
Try changing LRECL on the infile statement and include the TRUNCOVER option.
infile "C:\Users\weig3\Desktop\CRF.sas" lrecl=300 truncover ;

I did not add "input col $1-300;"
complete code is
infile "C:\Users\weig3\Desktop\CRF.sas" lrecl=300 truncover;
input col $1-300;
