Import a SAS data set in SAS

Hi,

I have a SAS file (type=SAS data set) in my E drive. How can i import it into SAS to read it. I know clicking on it with open the file in viewtable, but i want to import the file in sas and use proc contents.

How do i go about it? What things/questions am i supposed to ask or am required to know in such a situation?

It is quite urgent! Many thanks in advance.

Best Regards,

Mrinal

Re: Import a SAS data set in SAS

No need to import it. all you need to do is assign a library.

Check out programming 1 and statistics 1 on SAS U resources. SAS Analytics U | SAS

Example code for your question

     libname mrina "E:\";

     proc contents data=mrina.name_of_dataset;

     run;

     proc univariate data=mrina.name_of_dataset;

     run;

Good luck!

Miguel
