I wouldn't have thought so.  Never heard of Google Analytics before.  Does it utilise a database, or can it provide a datastream?  These are the only options I can think of Alternatively export the data/results from that and then import them into SAS.  Although the question arises, why bother using both in the first place?  Whilst it is best to use the correct tool for the job, there's no point having two of the same tool unless one does not do what you want and your testing for a replacement.

its is some dashboard updating through Google Analytics.

How to open the webpage and login to the same webpage.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

SAS can import data from websites, but it won't do the interactive things like logging in.

Since Ga supports automatic reporting (Export and Email Reports - Analytics Help), I would

- set up an email account within your organization

- have GA reports created automatically and sent to that email account

- set up an agent in that email account which automatically stores the attachment(s) of GA mails to a given location

Now you only have to check from SAS if a new file has arrived and then import that.
