If I have a large scale forecasting project to run (~300,000 time series), how to import data? Can I connect sas forecasting server to sql server or mysql directly like what Tableau does? Most online tutorials for sas forecasting server start from the step where .sas data file already exist in the library. I'm wondering what's the easiest way to handle if data amount is huge. Thank you!

SAS/ACCESS provides interfaces to many databases. I believe you can use it to set a up a library and create a data view to your source data. I am saying "believe" because I have never done it myself.  Hopefully someone else with real-world experience will chime in. 

 

This is the documentation:

http://support.sas.com/documentation/onlinedoc/access/index.html

 

You will need to have a license and have it installed. You can check by doings this:

 

 

proc setinit;run; /*for licensing*/
proc product_status;run;/*for installation*/
