Hi,

I am using SAS EG 7.1 and I was trying to import the data (data file is quite huge). The system shows System out of memory exception error. How to solve this issue.

 

Thanks

What kind of file are you importing?

Do you use code you write, or are you relying on the import wizard of EG?

Does the error message come from EG (please provide screenshot) or from the SAS log of the task node (post the log useing the {i} button)?

I am using CSV file (FIle size 3.8 gb)
Yes I am relying on import wizard of EG.

Then I would suggest the following:

  • use the Copy Files task to move the file to the server
  • write a data step to read the file into a dataset; you can use proc import first to get a prototype data step on which you can improve

PS your image link was not inserted correctly. Did you use the "Photos" button?

I only see this in your previous post:

which does not work.

 

Anyway, try an upload with the Copy Files task.
