XML Library does not open

Hello community,

I have the following statements:

filename  PROPHET "/appdata/sas/fb_daten/vrm/lp/lf/inte/E1_032015_DLV.xml";

filename  MAPFILE "/appdata/sas/fb_daten/vrm/lp/lf/Prophet.map";

libname PROPHET xml92 xmlmap=MAPFILE access=readonly;

The process is working fine but I cannot open any table in the library PROPHET. Enterprise Guide is loading but never finishes.

If I use xml instead of xml92 it works fine, but I would like to use xml92 because SAS processes the XML faster.

I checked the requirements for xml92 and my XMLMap is created with version 1.2 which should be ok.

Does anyone have an idea what is going on here?

I suggest to copy all the tables from the PROPHET library to the WORK libray. This will give you random access and the XML data does not have to be read everytime.

I only copy the relevant tables to WORK because the copy process is pretty slow since the XML is too large. Therefore, sometimes I have to go back to the initial PROPHET library. But this doesn't work with xml92 somehow...

Ok, sorry guys. Didn't know that xml92 is not compatible with SAS 9.2, which is still in use, here.

According to the documentation the XML92 engine was preproduction in SAS 9.2 and became production in SAS 9.2 maintenance release 3. So the XML92 engine is compatible with SAS 9.2. Did you try accessing a table in the library PROPHET from the SAS command line instead of Enterprise Guide?
