Exporting all code in a project to automatically include data upload/download processes

Hello all-

When I export all the code in a process flow-it exports all the program code from the programs themselves but NOT the data that needs to be downloaded to the local server after.

Is there a way to do this.

I need to port the actual SAS programs over to SAS Data Integration Studios for the purposes of scheduling. Since I can't port EG programs but rather the SAS programs I am looking for a solution, if there is one.

Thanks in advance

Lawrence

As I understand it the upload / download tasks in EG will only work in EG and don't use SAS code behind the scenes. This is why you can't export it to run in a non-EG SAS environment like DI Studio:

To be able to copy data from the DI Studio server to the local server,  there are a few options you could explore: arranging for local server directories to be 'visible' from the DI Studio Server or using FTP with SAS. What operating systems are the two servers? If they are both Windows then you can often 'see' one server from another using UNC: \\LocalServerName\dir1\dir2.

SASKiwi-

Thanks-

I had come to the same assessment.

The issue at large is that there are two separate network environments-windows and UNIX.

Currently there is no connectivity-I was trying to do an end run about having to set up an UNIX account and having to manage everything through FTP/ PERL scripts etc etc.

FTP is definitely a good option to explore for moving data from Unix to Windows. Hope it works out.
