Good day. I'm facing a problem with field and data labels when importing data from 'postgreSQL'.

I thought that file labels and data labels in VI are supposed to be entered as the comments of columns and the table respectively from the data as saved in 'PostgreSQL' automatically when importing external entities and dataset from 'PostgreSQL' into VI.

However, when I had imported data into VI in reality, the labels were entered with actual names of columns and tables not from their comments.

So I checked the structure of the dataset in SAS EG and found out that nothing was entered in the 'data set label'. I guess maybe that's why the labels were sourced from names.

So I have two questions about this problem.

1. How can I let the labels are automatically entered as comments of PostgreSQL DATA?

2. How do I check which parts VI refers to the labels and manipulate it?


Thank you. Have a nice day.
