Subject: Old SAS Guy needs help with some of these new fangled SAS 9.1.3
gizmos for Windows
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1"
Greetings all who have helped me in the past.
Here is something that has been bothering me unending and is causing me sleepless afternoons.
I know that I can import just about any file imaginable into SAS using the import function using SAS Windows 9.1.3.
However, when trying to get comma seperated values moved all at once into the new SAS file,
I can (or only know how to get) the data for one variable moved at a time. I would like to do a mass
move of all the data from the input file into the new SAS file. Is there a way to do this? Because once
I have imported the file into a new SAS file, established variable names, established formats, informats,
variable lengths, etc. I would like to be able to save the settings for the next like file that I want to import into what I have
already slaved over doing, defining, etc., without repeating the process.
Is there a way to do this?
Waiting with bad breath on the sidelines.
