i have a question, not directly related to SAS, but i hope somebody can relate to this problem and may have an answer.
I'm using an excel file which is suited to import tables to erwin.
This file has a column named "native type" where you define datatypes for specific columns. I have to import my character fields as "VARGRAPHIC" in DB2 format.
The data imports correctly, but not in any cases. if i define my columns wirh "VARGRAPHIC" the fields are imported as "VARWCHAR".
I guess the different encoding (from ebcdic to unicode) is the problem.
does anybody has a solution how do i import my columns as VARGRAPHIC? The definition is a requirement made by my managers and cannot be changes so easily.
(I would rather use varchar or something else...) Otherwise if i import my data with varchar i can change all varchar fields manually to vargraphic but with more than 10000 variables... its really is painful.... ignoring the fakt
changes are made to the data model... and i have to import it again.
Well im open for solutions, workarounds or other stuff

By saying "not directly related to SAS" you might want to wonder if it's good idea to use a SAS forum for your question. It's not related at all to SAS what I understand ;-)
Try the ERwn forums instead!
