download from MVS

Hi

Using SEG 4.1 thin client and a Zos server, I'd like to export a SAS table from my server to my PC as a .txt file. How do I do that ?

You can use PROC EXPORT to generate a delimited text file. Have a look at the SAS support http://support.sas.com/ website for DOC and supplemental technical papers on the topic of exporting SAS data to a text / delimited (external) file.

NOTE: The Import/Export facility is not supported on this operating system.

this is the answer...and this is why I ask. ;-)

Explore using ODS CSV to create a comma-delimited file (using FILENAME statement), generated by PROC PRINT.

Bit of a kludge, but you can create a code object and use ods to create a comma separated text file.

ods csv file='stephanie.txt';
run;
proc print data=zos.dataset;
run;
ods csv close;

Sorry for coming late to this party, but have you tried File->Export from SAS EG? You should be able to export the SAS table on MVS to any of several formats on your local PC, including text, Excel, etc.
