Retrieving data from MS Access via DDE


The title of my post says it all!

Is it possible to retrieve data from an Access database into SAS via DDE. I can already do this with Excel, so I'm hoping it is possible.

If it is possible, does anybody have some sample code?

Many thanks.

Search the SAS.COM support website - there is SAS-hosted documentation and supplemental technical / conference reference material. Also, check the forum archives as well.
