Code node in EG project...using an EG project for the scheduling capabilities...
PIPE to a folder
Data step to create dataset of folder metadata attributes (particularly looking at one file in the folder)
Parse out the Create Date of file of interest.
Compare that date to sysdate using a macro.
If no match, program sleeps and rechecks for date match using do loop before continuing to the actual meat of the program.
Of course I now realize through research that this fails at the beginning because you can't use PIPE in EG. Is there any coding alternatives other than changing the EG config (or anything of that nature)?
SAS EG running locally only. No SAS server...yet. Hoping to get it soon.
