Re: Unable to read Unicode file into SAS file
Another possibility is that proc import isn't correctly getting the right formats and informats. If you already know what those formats and informats should be, you can always copy, paste and edit (from the log) the data step that resulted from the proc import run, adjusting any incorrect formats and informats and then just run it as a data step. Also, while I don't think it would make any difference, your proc import contains two "datafile=chr" statements.

Re: Opening non SAS files with BASE SAS ? #2
Hi, If, when you check your licensing(i.e. SETINIT) proc setinit; run; in SAS, if you have SAS/ACC-ODBC, then you can easily setup an ODBC entry in your Windows ODBC Wizard to your SQL Server. After doing that you can run the SQL Server query from SAS directly to SQL Server and have the result come right directly back into SAS into a SAS dataset. See the couple archive links below for syntax details. http://listserv.uga.edu/cgi-bin/wa?A2=ind0709C&L=sas-l&P=R12721 http://listserv.uga.edu/cgi-bin/wa?A2=ind0105D&L=sas-l&P=R13103 The X command in SAS can run external commands but the SQL-passthrough is what most of us use.

Re: Reading PDF Files into SAS #2
Mona You have received several responses that speak of using some external tool to do a pdf to text conversion and then, presumably, you would parse the text with SAS. These responses depend on the PDF having been produced by a pdf writer and not by the file being a scanned image. In the later case, you would need to use an OCR reader to convert the pictures to text. Do you need to do only a few conversions or many and will this be an ongoing task? If you are only going to do an occasional conversion, I would use the Save As Text which is found in Adobe Acrobat Reader 7.0 and maybe earlier. However, if this is a larger project, I would (and have) used an external program to do the conversions. I have a paper from several years ago posted at http://www.vasug.org/Proceedings/2003-02/Presentations/EXTRACTING%20DATA%20FROM%20PDF%20FILES.doc This describes how I used a tool that converted one pdf at a time and controlled this from within the SAS program. Since that time, I have had a similar project and was not able to get the pdf converter that I used earlier to work. However, I found one available on line that converted all of the pdfs in a folder in one pass I was able to eliminate all of the SAS calls that ran the external process. I ran that particular job from home since there are restrictions on using unapproved tools here at work and I do not recall the name of the converter. Good luck.

Re: running a sas file within a sas file
Like Joep wrote: that seems to be the right thing for the macro facility. With %include you are very static. With the macro facility that could be very dynamic. The simplest thing is: you could provide the statements you want to insert as parameter: %macro doit(stmt1=,stmt2=); ..... &stmt1 ..... &stmt2 ..... %mend; %doit(stmt1=%str(y=sqrt(y);), stmt2=%str(if y<2 then y=2;) ); with many other things you can do, e.g. conditional creating of statements, naming variables by parameters, create multiple statements with macro loops and much more. On the other hand: if you want to do such simple things like you wrote, avoid any %INC or %MACRO things! It is far more readable, if you don't use %INCLUDES. What do you think, that data-step will do: data a; %inc(inc1); %inc(inc2); %inc(inc3); run; ??? instead of: data a; set sashelp.class; if age>11 then age=11; keep name age; run; Gerhard On Mon, 9 Jun 2008 01:42:03 -0700, Joep Steeman <jsteeman@BUSINESSDECISION.COM> wrote: >On 9 jun, 09:20, zpe...@NATURE.BERKELEY.EDU (Zach Peery) wrote: >> Sorry to bug you all with such an easy one, but I havent had much luck >> with the usual help sources. >> >> I just want to run a sas program file within a sas program file.
