|Subject: ||Proc Append Q|
The proc append is generally faster than using set statements.
In the world of the big iron, dasd can be an issue.
If you do a proc append to a dataset that runs out of space, are there any
straight forward solutions that a non-SAS user can easily follow?
In the past (v6) we changed our APPENDs to MERGEs with BY variables - used
more resources but was easily recoverable by our operations folks.
Is there a way for SAS to revert to the old dataset if an APPEND results
in an error?
