Re: Is it possible to read a sas dataset NOT using sas?

You might try the Universal OLE DB driver.

Docs at: http://tinyurl.com/2cmgcf

Driver page at: http://tinyurl.com/2hbc23

I think this should allow you to read a sas data set but not write to it.
Also, the driver does not support much beyond a Select * clause.

Is it possible to read a sas dataset NOT using sas and have
observations and variables etc. rather than having meaningless chunks
of text?

YEZZZZ, and even for free !!! Download the sas system viewer: http://www.umass.edu/statdata/software/downloads/SASViewer/index.html Hermie Hi Roland, I guess you know of the World Programming System, WPS? It can read (and write, I think) SAS datasets - see http://www.teamwpc.co.uk/products/wps/features/data_access Way back in early 1990s, I reverse-engineered the PC SAS 6.03 dataset format in order to write an interactive variable-name-and-label editor. It worked fine, but then the SAS7BDAT format came along. It's more complex but could also be reverse-engineered. I would have thought that the legality of doing was questionable, but if WPS have done it then I guess not. What do you need such a facility for?

Re: Using SAS with large datasets (linking SAS and Access)
I have very little experience with using this but I have found that if you have SAS Access for PC Products licensed, just as you can issue a libname statement pointing to an Excel workbook, you can also issue one for an Access database. Try doing this and then look at your SAS explorer window where you will see an icon for the Access file and will then be able to look at the Access tables as if they were SAS data sets.

Re: Deleting SAS Data from a SAS DATASET #4
Summary: PROC DATASETS; AGE statement. + VIEWs This won't help you delete data from your very big data set, but you may find this example interesting. You say you append data monthly to a big data set then when big gets too big you need to clean out the old. And that takes a very long time. However if you don't physically append but use a view to append/combine you may find it easier to get rid of the unwanted old data. Consider this code. it pushes MonthlyUpdate onto the stack of 24 data sets and the 24th data set is deleted. Then all the data sets get renamed to produce a new group of 24. You can see from the notes how the operation works.

Re: Deleting SAS Data from a SAS DATASET #2
Chandra - this isn't my expertise area - I'm sure others may have better ideas but I'll make three comments. If your datasets have a large number of variables, in your datastep method a WHERE clause will be more efficient - the IF statement causes each record to be fully read before it can be selected for deletion. A WHERE clause would only read the single variable in the case of records that meet the criteria for deletion. Data prod.Master_date; set prod.master_date; where snap_dt ne "&end_dt"d; run; You probably would be better off changing your data model though - my first thought would to be to store your data as separate yearly or monthly files and then access them with a view of the past two years or 24 months. With each month or year you would delete the oldest file and change the view one time period forward. *set up the data; data time1 time2 time3 time4; do i = 1 to 100; do t = 1 to 4; if t=1 then output time1; if t=2 then output time2; if t=3 then output time3; if t=4 then output time4; end; end; run; *three successive example views; data filet1 / view=filet1; set time1 time2; run; data filet2 / view=filet2; set time2 time3; run; data filet3 / view=filet3; set time3 time4; run; One more thought - since the data are appended - if the file is not reordered and you have the record counts from each append - then you can use firsto...

Re: Deleting SAS Data from a SAS DATASET #3
The disadvantages of using SQL delete are (1) NOBS= is no longer accurate, and (2) POINT= may behave unexpectedly.

Re: Deleting SAS Data from a SAS DATASET #15
Summary: Suggestions for maintaining large data set #iw-value=1 Chandra, You are essentially making a copy of a 50GB file every month. Of course, it takes long. Consequently you either have to copy the data more efficiently or modify how the data is stored and/or used. Have you looked at system options to make this as efficient as possible? Big buffers, many buffers. Different disk handlers for input and output would also speed up the process since it is mainly IO bound. (These topics have been discussed on SAS-L, in papers, and documentation. I have not found the techniques necessary, but then I have not worked with 50 GB data sets.) You are adding about 2 gig per month. That is 4% increase. Perhaps accepting the increase one month and then modifying the second month would make more sense, if the data is accessed infrequently. To do this you need to control all programs that read the data set. It might pay to combine the previous suggestion with the MODIFY command. I suspect that SAS can skip over deleted records pretty quickly. It might pay to store the data by month and each month create a new view data prod.master / view = prod.master ; set prod.mon_x ... prod.mon_y ; run ; The process could even be automated with something like %macro prod_list ( end_dt = 1jul2008 ) ; %local i mon ; %do i = -11 %to 0 ; %let mon = %sysfunc(intnx(month,"&end_dt"d,&i)) ; %let mon = %sysfunc(putn(...
