Proc upload option to exclude index files

I'm doing a proc upload to a linux server.  The issue i'm having is that the SAS Data Set Index (*.sas7bndx) files are also uploaded.  How can I exclude them from being moved?

rsubmit;

proc upload in=temp out=tempOut ;

    select tab1 tab2 tab3 etc..... ;

run ;

endrsubmit;

I only want tab1.sas7bdat not tab1.sas7bndx

Thank you

Re: Proc upload option to exclude index files

libname educlib 'sasdemo.educcats.screens' server=abcserv sapw=demopw;

libname tempOut '.';

proc datasets;

copy in=educlib out=tempOut index=no;

select tab1 tab2 tab3 etc......;

run;

quit;

PROC UPLOAD only allows for the upload or the destination-side recreation of an index.  If you want to no have an index at all after the transfer use a different procedure, such as PROC DATASETS.

Hi FriedEgg,

Thank you for your reply. 

This is currently how I have to connect to my linux version of sas.

options netencryptalgorithm = tripledes ;

%let host=xxxxxxxx.xxx ;

signon host.10000 user=temp password=temp1 ;

Is there a way to use proc datasets within rsubmit?

Thanks again.
