Subject: SAS from Unix
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1
Here's a question that I haven't been able to get an answer from SAS
or driver companies for.
We have a BI tool which we are attempting to pull data from SAS. Now,
this tool will leverage any v3.5 compliant odbc driver and it runs on
a Solaris operating system.
Here's the issue. I have no problems connecting to SAS via a windows
odbc driver. I cannot however find a unix odbc driver and driver
manager which is compatible. I find lots of stuff about use
SAS/Access to pull other sources into SAS but not pulling data out.
Am I forced to leverage windows or export to flat files?
I have tried the unixodbc.org's open source driver and data direct
states that their driver is incompatible. I seem to be running out of
options, SAS recommended both of these neither works and they don't
seem to have documentation.
