Rahul, why not just reload the data in the data query builder using the exception as a filter.

Hi Peter,

 

Thanks for your prompt reply.

 

I can't reload the data on daily basis as table size is to large it takes 10-12 hours for full load so I loading data on daily basis by incremental load using Append Tables.

But here I need to delete last 3 days data from LASR Table and append updated last 3 days data.

 

Regards

Rahul

No Problem, that is all I can contribute for now.
Maybe check with your local SAS support.
Greetings and good luck.

PROC IMSTAT allows you to make changes to data that is loaded in LASR.

I just wanted to know if you managed to find anything related to this question, because I have similar problem.

I need to delete ~1000 rows every hour from roughly table with 22 000 000 rows of data.

 

If you have any questions I asked in topic "Best way for frequent and fast refresh of data on LASR server".

Hi there

this is the sas code if you want to delete LASR data with scheduled scripting

 

libname LASR sasiola PORT=10010 HOST="xxxxxxx.xxxxxxx.xxx" ;  (server name)
OPTION NOSYNTAXCHECK;
option DBIDIRECTEXEC;


PROC IMSTAT data=LASR.Cust_Compl /*noprint*/;
WHERE Company <> '';
RUN;
deleterows / purge;
RUN;

 

Later I add the new data with proc append.

greetings and good luck.

Hi,

 

This conversation is partially related to my issue too, kindly see:

 

https://communities.sas.com/t5/SAS-Visual-Analytics/Deleting-LASR-records-using-proc-imstat-with-Mer...

 

1) I have a dataset A (having millions of records) in LASR library. 

2) Importing B file with few hundred rows.

3) Need to compare A and B and delete common records from A (lasr library) without creating a temporary copy.

 

Solution:

Using imstat statement--(not working)

 

proc imstat data=LASRLIB.A;
merge LASRLIB.A (in=a)
                  B    (in=b);
if a and b;        

run;
deleterows / purge; 
run;

 

(Note: Merge won't work with proc imstat, it is just to show what I exactly need.)

 

 

Is there any other way to do it?

Please let me know in case of any gaps.
