missing .lst files with proc import

Hello,

I have written up a short program to read csv files and run it on a sas unix server. If I use

"data infile " to read files there is no problem, it reads file and makes .log, .lst files.

When I read it with "proc import" it cannot, the log file doesn't have anything and

there is no .lst file showing print result.

Here I show the programs:

working one:

filename csvname '/home/usr08/newdata/abc15.csv';

data stockdata;

infile csvname dsd delimiter=',';

input var1 mmddyy10. var2 time12.3 var3 var4 var5 $;

run;

title "List of raw data";

proc print data=stockdata;

format var1 mmddyy10. var2 time 12.3;

run;

the one with "proc import"

filename csvname '/home/usr08/newdata/abc15.csv';

proc import datafile=csvname out=stockdata dbms=csv replace;

getnames=no;

run;

proc print data=stockdata;

run;

The log file is empty so I cannot track down the error. Do you know why this is happening?

Best

Re: missing .lst files with proc import

An empty log file happens to me usually when I run SAS in batch mode with the name of a non-existing program file.
