Hi Experts,


My datasource has 438 fields, but when i added this datasource in SAS Visual Analytics Explorer, just 396 fields are available to exploration.
Does anyone know how to resolve this issue ?
I'm working with SAS Visual Analytics 6.4

Hi fabianovs,


Without knowing what the source table looks like, it’s difficult for us to investigate. For a quick resolution to a question like this, open a track with Technical Support. For information on other ways to contact Tech Support, refer to:

Missing columns in Visual Analytics Explore Data


Hi There,


If it is a Excel or CSV orText file, you need to convert into SAS Dataset using Base SAS or EG, then try to import it using Data Explorer or Report Designer or Data Builder.  Surely it will resolve the issue.  


Thanks & Regards,
