Hi, I have a dataset that contains multiple records. I need to write it out to a flat file in such a way that all records are written in first record. (same row as header). Below is the code I wrote. But, my job is truncating the file and not outputting all records as I need.


filename credit "/user/ccc/xx/LTR.txt";


data _null_;
set test;

file credit dlm="|" dsd lrecl=60000;

if _n_=1 then do;
put @1'var1|var2|var3|var4|var5|var6|var7'
var1 var2 var3 var4 var5 var6 var7;
end;

run;

 

NOTE: 1 record was written to the file CREDIT.
The minimum record length was 90.
The maximum record length was 90.
NOTE: There were 7 observations read from the data set WORK.TEST.

Try something like :

 

filename credit "&sasforum.\datasets\credit.txt";

data _null_;
file credit lrecl=60000;
put 'name|sex|age|height|weight|' @;
do while(not done);
    set sashelp.class end=done;
    put (name sex age height weight) (+(-1)"|") @; 
    end;
stop;
run;
