Subject: one more interactive SAS question
Content-type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii
I have received many great replies to previous questions relating to the
display manager. However, I do have one more question. Currently all of
my programs are in a pds file and I often summarize data early in a program
and save it to a permanent file. (my JCL for this is: PERM DD
DSN=IUJMEEQ.LIBRARY.DATASET, DISP=OLD, a sample file would be PERM.SAVE).
Ideally I would like to access the data in my permanent files when using
interactive SAS. Currently I have only been able to use interactive SAS to
check syntax. I.E. no observations. Could anyone give me a sample of how
to access a permanent file while using interactive SAS? Thanks in advance!
When using Interactive SAS I submit: FILNAME PROG
then type INCLUDE PROG on the command line to bring up my program. I
routinely enter PROG REPLACE to save my changes.
