Re: How to read external files in SAS?

Hi:
See the forum posting here:

And if you are further asking how to read external files using a SAS stored process, you may choose to use Data Integration Studio to set up a job to read your external file and then turn that job into a stored process, or you may continue to read your external file with SAS and just write the table to a location on the server or, you may read your data into a temporary data set with a SAS stored process in order to do your report. However, if you intend for other folks to be able to see and use the data after being read, then you must register your SAS libraries and tables in the Metadata. You might consider investigating the SAS Enterprise Intelligence Platform documentation for more information about setting up libraries and tables in the Metadata.
