Re: Diff between Infile statement and Import procedure

The INFILE statement is used for text files (and similar). The IMPORT procedure is used for a number of other data structures that SAS cannot read directly through one of its library engines. To see which applies to which, read the documentation for the INFILE statement, the IMPORT procedure, and LIBNAME engine.
