I am running SAS 9.1, EG 4.1. I am trying to execute a vbscript from code in SAS EG. I can not use the x or call system command. Is there any way that I can write VBSCRIPT code in SAS and execute or call a vbscript file on my local computer to run without causing my SAS administrator work?
SAS is running on a remote server. Not quite sure what you mean by execute SAS code in batch. I can submit code, and it runs on the server.
Here is what I want to accomplish. I have data on my local machine, on the SAS server, and on another server. I would like to be able to manipulate files in all these places from within SAS to automate processes. Right now, I can import files from either server because I use absolute addresses, but I can't import from my local computer. Doesn't seem to recognize c:\ as a drive, but maybe this is a seperate problem.
I have vbscript files written to copy and rename monthly csv files, clear log files, etc. I would like to be able to do this through SAS. My SAS administrator is not an expert, so I would like to avoid having to explain to him how to remove the noxcmd option if possible.
