I am using the following code to compress all the datasets in a library. But it requires creating a new library to save the compressed files and that is an issue with me due to very large number of files. Is it possible to compress the whole library without saving into a new one?
****Compressing the whole library;
proc datasets lib=tab nolist;
copy inlib=sas outlib=saso noclone datecopy memtype=data;
You will need a macro loop to iterate over tables in the library. Here is some sample code that might help. You'll need to update the WHERE clause and then add the code that you want into the loop.
proc sql; select catt(libname,".",memname), count(*) into :table1 -, :table_cnt from sashelp.vmember where libname="WORK" and memtype="DATA"; quit; %macro myloop; %do i = 1 %to &table_cnt; %put Working on &&table&i..; /* Your code here */ %end; %mend; %myloop;
