[Custom tasks] Display SAS data table in Guide


I would like to create a custom task to open a SAS data table stored in a SASMAIN libname into the SAS enterprise guide client.

For exemple, I select a SAS table name into a list and click on a button to open this table in Guide. It will work as if I double-clicked on the table to open it, except that I simulate the user action with my program.

Do you know which function I can use to display the content of the table into Guide ?

Thanks a lot for your time.

It doesn't do exactly what you need, but you can see the concepts of reading data and displaying it in a data view.
