Why does importing sas code also need to execute it?
Can I skip the execution of the SAS code when importing the code?
If the SAS code takes 1 hour to run and I have n files to import it will take (n x 1) hours.:smileyshocked:
I already know the .sas code is perfect and will run. :smileylaugh:

Yes, you could wish for a more syntax analyzing import rather than a full execution.
Consider to add a options obs= in your code, which you could remove after the import.

A good point. Execution with less observations will run faster.
However an EG file with somewhere "proc SQL; drop table; create table as select * from other table;" does a lot of "damage" if just imported in the wrong server environment.
