I've written 2 patterns of code.(difference is the "*" before "getnames=no")
The result for code 1 is all value within the CSV is "< Value not readable>"
The result for code 2 is the correct imports except the row 1 value and the column names are var1,etc.
Can anyone give a hand?
Thanks in advance.

Thanks for your attention.
For better understanding I attached the 2 outputs of result for your reference.
The first is the output of code 1,the second is the output of code 2.

I'd like to suggest you to read the csv file in the datastep infile and input. In my experience, I have encountered various issues whilst using Proc import. Presumably, datastep is perhaps more efficient too. Or, there is a possibility of saving your csv file as an xls file and use the import wizard. However, I would assume the dataset is much too large to fit in the xls file.
Datastep option is perhaps better in my opinion.

I am seeing the special Eastern language characters once being indicated to be solved by a DBCS approach.
Web/Html and Microsoft office are using utf-8 these days. Most systems however are using latin-1 (western) single byte.
This is what Tom already mentioned as being an encoding problem. You cannot read all chars of utf-8 in a latin-1 only system.
When your SAS system is running latin-1 change it to run utf-8 (different menu lay-out) and import again.
Be aware of the bom (byte order mark) can be added to files editted by a SAS utf-8 system possible making them unusable for programs not aware of utf-8 encoding.

If your original data is stored in a XLSX file then you can use the new %xlsx2sas macro to transform it to SAS data set without going through CSV format.
The %xlsx2sas macro supports NLS encoding (UTF-8).

See if the following works.
