Can I insert data from a sas dataset into a sql table using passthrough? I have a sas dataset called inputdataset. I am using the following code to insert that into the database but the sas dataset is not recognized.
Proc SQL noprint;
Connect to odbc as FTP(required = "Dsn=&DbDsn");
Execute (Insert into ITGCostCurves
Select *, &PeriodDate as TimePeriod from InputDataSet) by FTP;
disconnect from FTP;
I'm afraid this won't be possible. With SQL pass through, the sql is executed directly by the database management system (The SQL must follow the syntax in use at dbms level). The dbms has no view on your SAS datasets.
If you want to insert data in a table, the best solution is to connect to the ODBC database using a libname statement. This should look like this:
libname dta ODBC dsn="&DbDsn";
The insert would look like this:
insert into dta.ITGCostCurves .... select ...
