Subject: Question about GuessingRows Non-Windows Systems
In a Windows environment when one has a mixture of character and numeric
data in a column of an Excel spreadsheet, we know that proc import's
behavior will be dependent upon the combination of the system's
GuessingRows setting and how many of those rows are character.
Do non-Windows systems have a similar setting or is the behavior of proc
import strictly controlled by the distribution of character values in the
first eight rows of the spreadsheet?
Thanks in advance,
