> I am importing data from a zipped file, unzipping with a filename statement, and in my infile statement I have lrecl=32767.
> I get an error:
> ERROR: Invalid compressed data, length does not match.
> FATAL: Unrecoverable I/O error detected in the execution of the data step program. Aborted during the EXECUTION phase.
> Does the error refer to the lrecl, and if so, is there a way to tell the max line record length without importing the whole file from the unzipped file? I couldn't find anything on the sas help for this specific error. If the error does not refer to the lrecl, does anyone know what it does refer to?
