How do plan to use the Informix DB? retrieving/loading data?
I can't see in the current SAS release that a direct connection to Informix is possible, at least by using SAS-only techniques.
My guess is that your options would be:
- Using a SAS Connect to a SAS UNIX server, and there use SAS/ACCESS to Informix
- Using a SAS Connect to a SAS Windows server, and there use SAS/ACCESS to ODBC to connect to Informix
- For data retrieval: have Informix export it's data in flat files
Could be wise to contact SAS for help/guidance of this set-up.
