I see a lot of SAS documentation on how to create a view, and efficiency and etc. etc., but nothing on syntax to just read the view to create a subset dataset for a report.
I have access to a library of data from another department. In that library is a view, already created, and updated each month. I just need data from that view to create a subset that will be used for reporting purposes. I don't want to create the reports directly from that view, for safety and data integrity purposes and to prevent errors or overrwriting data.
I want to write a data step to place the data from that view into a dataset in another library as follows:
data mylib.acls_curr ;
set loan.Month_end_data ; /** NOTE: "month_end_data" is an existing view **/
I do not see any problems with your code. Views are used the same way as datasets. The difference is in creation of a view (namely in the data stetement):
