SAS Bridge for ESRI and XMLMap parsing errors

Hello SAS Community,

This is my first post. and I am not sure if it's in the right place but here goes.

I am running SAS 9.2, SAS Bridge for ESRI 3.5 and ArcGIS10. I am using the SAS Bridge for ESRI extension in ArcGIS10 and trying to export a SAS dataset from a large SDE Feature Class. The full SDE Feature Class export fails. I tried smaller selection sets and was successfull with 50,000 and 100,000 records. I tried 150,000 records and the export failed.

I have lots of available disk space for temporary space and final destination (124gig). I did notice that the failed process leaves the incomplete XML file on the disk.

Has anyone dealt with this issue before? Any ideas?

Thanks in advance for any help you may have.

Don't know about this particular case, but generally XML isn't very good for exporting/importing big files. 150' records isn't that much, but in XML...?

Since you have an "Internal processing error" in your log, I suggest that you open ticket with SAS tech support.

Hello Linus,

Thanks for the reply. I have already opened a ticked with SAS and they are supposed to get back to me with some feedback.

Here’s the funny thing about this situation…a person I know at a different government agency is using the same data set, the same software and can do exactly what I am trying to do without error. We check our hardware and software configurations, network setups, etc…everything is essentially the same.

Thanks again for the info.
