An introduction to the INPUT and INFILE statements, which combine to provide a simple, yet powerful, method to pass data into SAS.
Time & Location
Feb 08, 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM EST
The SAS System has numerous capabilities to store, analyze, report, and present data. However, those features are useless unless that data is stored in, or can be accessed by, the SAS System. This presentation includes an introduction to the INPUT and INFILE statements, which combine to provide a simple, yet powerful, method to pass data into the SAS System. Matters to be addressed are reading fixed and variable length files, .CSV files, in-stream data, informats, and more.
