Subject: Capture File Names being read using a wildcard
I thought there was a way to capture a list of files being read by SAS
when using a wildcard in filename statement.
filename myfiles "C:\data\*.txt";
input x y z;
I know the log will show what files were read but I was hoping to be able
to capture them as it is reading the files or on completion of reading the
Any ideas without having to write a separate macro to get the list using a
DOS command and then looping through that list - which I have.
Just looking to use a short cut if it exists.
Thanks in advance,
