I'm trying to create a map based on the US Census zip code boundary files. This is based on the steps outlined in this paper: http://support.sas.com/resources/papers/proceedings13/214-2013.pdf
I've downloaded the proper map files and gotten to the point where I run this:
proc mapimport datafile="C:/LOCAL_FILE_LOCATION.shp"out=va_zshp;
The program errors out though as it is looking to the "remote" SASAppOA server, rather than my local machine for this file.
Is there a way I can "force" EG to look locally?
I attempted to use the "Upload Data Files to Server" add-in, but it doesn't recognize .SHP
I also can't seem to get import data to work for this either, it doesn't recognize format.
Using EG 6.1 on SAS 9.4
