Is it possible to use the Proc Import statement in SAS EG Guide 4 when the database I am trying to import is stored locally on my PC? It is on my "C:" drive. When I use SAS 9.1 (PC Sas) I am import my database with a Proc Import but i keep getting an error message when using EG Guide 4. Is it possible to import from your local PC while running EG Guide on the Unix Server?
Any help would be greatly appreciated, I am fairly new to SAS.
It should be possible, it certainly is a choice on the Import menus. Without knowing the message it's hard for us on the forum to help. Your best bets on resolving an error message are
1) go to support.sas.com and put a "significant" part of the message into the search field (put quotes around it so it searches for the phrase). I usually get a useful answer on the first page that way.
2) call technical support.
On the Unix server, EGuide runs on the Windows XP as a client (only), and you can have SAS 9.1.3 running on Unix as a server. You may need to use a libname statement to get to the Access DB (see the SAS/Access to PC file formats documentation for that part).
