Re: Adding datafiles into SAS library

Several options: data step program, direct procedure output or copy from existing.

a trivial example of a datastep program to create a dataset named Newdata in a library named Mylib.

data mylib.newdata;

     x=5;

run;

Create output of summary values of height and weight by sex from the SAS supplied data set Class in the Library Sashelp using output to send to library Mylib and dataset Sumdata.

Proc summary data=sashelp.class;

class sex;

var height weight;

output out=mylib.sumdata sum=;

run;

Re: Adding datafiles into SAS library

Thanks for the answer but I am still not clear. The requirement for me is that I have a file in my shared drive for example /folders/myfolders/test.csv. And I need to add data from this file into my library mydata. How can I do this ?
