Hi All,

 

I am currently working on a project for that I have to transfer the data from one folder to another in this process I have to achieve the golas mentioned below.

 

1. Transfering files (Goal Reached)

2. Zip all the data and transfer (Not reached)

3. Get email notificiation for the above transfer via email (outlook) (Not reached)

 

I am using SAS Enterprise Guide 9.2. Please let me know how can we achieve. And I tried using the below code.

 This is specific to step 3, sending email.

filename outbox email "xyz<XXX.XXX@XXX.com>";
data _null_;
file outbox
subject='test mail message';
put "hello";
put "this is a message from the data step";
run;

 

Try this out. Example of first line can be 

filename outbox email "jashu14<jashu14@hotmail.com>";

 

You can also supply From, who is sending the email.

 

filename outbox email "xyz<XXX.XXX@XXX.com>";
data _null_;
file outbox
from = "abcd<abcd.xxx@xxx.com>" subject='test mail message'; put "hello"; put "this is a message from the data step"; run;

Re: turn on email notification

E-mail from SAS works best using SMTP.  On Windows, that's not the default.

 

Specify the EMAILSYS option and the EMAILHOST option with the SMTP server in your organization.  Example:

 

options emailhost='mymailhost.company.com' emailsys=smtp;

If using an external e-mail provider like GMail, you need additional options.
