how can i access SAS Data Sets resides on a remote host that does not
have any SAS software installed on it ???
is there a way so that the remote machine act as a data source only, without the need of installing anything on that machine.
Is it possible to copy these data sets to the local SAS server? If not, then you might have to mount the directory hosting these datasets onto the SAS server so these files can be assessed natively (such as NFS or CIFS).
if your SAS machine can address the remote data then I think you should be able to access it subject to the rules of CEDA (cross environment data access).
Normally it is the libname statement that connects your SAS session to data.
