I am trying to set the data types when reading a spreadsheet using the libname XLSX enging.
I am sucssful in reading the spreadsheet, however when I try to use the DBSASTYPE SAS throws and error. I am using SAS EG 8.3. The facility_id appears in excel to be a column of numbers. I am able to read it and convert it.
My question is specific to using the dbSASTYPE functionality. If I remove the dbSAStype, I can successfully read the file.
I did notice on LinkedIN a couple weeks ago that Henry Feldman is 'open to work' after departing ATT. Perhaps SAS will be able to hire him back... I wouldn't think it would be hard to add support for DBSASTYPE.
