0 records importing into SAS

hi all,

 

trying to import a  csv  file into pc sas.

Same code works  with other  people  here but does not  for me:

 

 

proc import datafile="\\xxx\yyy\zzz\aaa\bbb\x\y\z\temp.csv" dbms=dlm out=temp replace;

delimiter=","; getnames=yes; guessingrows=3500;

run;

 

errors:

NOTE: The infile '\\xxx\yyy\zzz\aaa\bbb\x\y\z\temp.csv is:

Filename=\\xxx\yyy\zzz\aaa\bbb\x\y\z\temp.csv,

RECFM=V,LRECL=32767,File Size (bytes)=38270,

NOTE: 0 records were read from the infile '\\xxx\yyy\zzz\aaa\bbb\x\y\z\temp.csv'

NOTE: The data set WORK.TEMP has 0 observations and 7 variables.

NOTE: DATA statement used (Total process time):

real time 0.02 seconds

cpu time 0.01 seconds

 

also  tried :

 

proc import datafile="\\xxx\yyy\zzz\aaa\bbb\x\y\z\temp.csv" dbms=csv out=temp replace;

guessingrows=3500;

run;

exactly same error.  I can import  excel  files .No problems....

 

Any hints  please?

Thx

Re: 0 records importing into SAS

Can you attach the first 3 records from that file? You say that others 'here' have been able to import the same file successfully. Are you and they using the same operating system?

Re: 0 records importing into SAS

Your platform is some kind of unix.

Are you sure you have the permission to the file? to the folder and all the subfolders?

Can you open the CSV file with other unix (AIX, linux) application ?

Re: 0 records importing into SAS

I  can  import the same  file  from EG SAS(UNIX) but not  from PC SAS. We all use  Windows SAS and a  few of my  co-workers i spoke with can  easily open and  import this  file  from  pc sas. I can view it, i  have access to the  folder  where this file is placed and yet cannot  import it (0 records) . I even created  temp csv  files on my desktop   and same  problem,all seem  good  but  0 records  imported.

 

atttached  are a  few  records of that file

 

Thx
