Subject: Re: MSAccess97 to SAS V8.2 PC Import of 56k memo fields
The memo data type in Access can hold up to 64000 chars.
Proc import has limit for memo, which is 32767. So if your memo is langer
than 32767, proc import will have trouble.(I haven't tested it. As all the
memo I have is less than 32767)
PROC IMPORT OUT=table1
