PROC SPDO cluster list output

cluster membersHello,

I am working with cluster tables on SPDS 4.3.

I am exploring possibilities to get a list of the cluster members in form of a dataset.

One possible solution is using PROC CONTENTS and ODS output to aquire a comma seperated list of the cluster members.

(http://stackoverflow.com/questions/19958194/clustermembers-on-spds-4-3)

The strange thing is, that PROC SPDO does not seem to use ODS for output.

ODS trace on in combination with PROC SPDO cluster list produces only the following log entry: NOTE: The PROCEDURE SPDO printed page 1.

Is it possible to get this printed information in form of a dataset or other form suitable for further processing?

Thanks in advance

Re: PROC SPDO cluster list output

Did you try Proc Contents with out= / out2= options?

The above two options would allow you to create data set of the output.

Hope this helps,

Thanks for your remark. Yes, I can obtain the members with PROC CONTENTS with the following code:

ods output EngineHost=dataset; proc contents data=P30C033.LD_LIQ_CLUS_Customer directory details;

This creates a table work.dataset which contains a comma seperated list of the cluster member.

The original question was, how to obtain information from a PROC which is not using ODS but another way of generating output. Like PROC SPDO.

You can use Proc Printto to redirect the log and procedure output to external file, then you can try to parse the resulted file contents.
