DataType when import from server

 

 Hi Gurus,

 

I am not sure why the datatype is SAS data type in EG but in fact it i just pull it out from Oracle Server ? Does it mean that when i pull it out from Oracle to SAS , it has already save those record in temp folder ?

 

The procedure i connect to Oracle server is

 

I ) libname FILE Oracle ................;

 

II) then expend the left down pane  Servers-> Local -> Libraries -> FILE

 

III) Pull one table to right (working flow area)

 

IV) Right click and property, it shows SAS DataType

 

Thanks in advance

Hi,

 

From what I can deduce from your code fragments you assign a libref with the Oracle engine. This leaves the data in Oracle but presents the tables to SAS as if they were SAS datasets (albeit with some special characteristics). So don't worry, you have not (yet) copied the data.
