Re: HOW TO CALL SAP function IN SAS

Could you be a little more specific?
What is your SAS environment? Which SAS products do you license?
In what situation do you to call SAP? What kind of SAP function do you wish to call and do you need any output from that function?

Re: HOW TO CALL SAP function IN SAS

Depending on your operating system, you can cause an external process to be launched using CALL SYSTEM or using the "X" command. Search the SAS support website using the keywords listed below or perform a similar Google advanced search against the sas.com website:

x command external program site:sas.com

Basically you will want to review the SAS "companion" guide for your particular operating system to learn the details on this facility. Add the keyword "sugi" to your search string if you want to identify some user group (SUGI / SGF) technical papers to your results.
