Reply with quote

Hi,

Can anyone let me know the procedure for downloading the SAS dataset present in Mainframe to a SDS folder(similiar to FTP folder). On the destination side, the SAS dataset should be saved with extension "sas7bdat" i.e., MEMTYPE=DATA during downloading...I need this with this extension such that it should be readily openable using PC-SAS...

I was trying the below code

Code:

LIBNAME FTP1 SERVER='server name'                         
              USER='user-id'                                     
              PASSWORD='password';                               

PROC COPY IN=SRCNAME                                               
          OUT=FTP1                                                 
          MEMTYPE=DATA;                                             
RUN; 


and receiving the following error...

Code:

Attempt to connect to server 'server name' failed.
A communication subsystem partner link setup request failure has occurred.
Cannot locate TCP host.


But I was able to login to the same server using an FTP job... Server names was given correct...

Your help will be highly appreciable....

Do a PROC COPY of the data and then FTP that in a seperate jobstep. Usually works.

Hello Expat,

During the PROC COPY, do we need to define the destination file with RECFM=FS or RECFM=FB...??

I dont have PC-SAS on my machine.. so I have to do with assumption... Pls help..

And also, during FTP, can we directly save in the FTP server with extension *.sas7bdat...?? If we do in that manner, will the file get opened using a PC-SAS s/w..??

I usually run a PROC CPORT to create a portable copy
Code:

//COPYIN    DD DSN=Your SAS Library,DISP=SHR         
//COPYOUT   DD DSN=Your EXPORT File,                 
//             DISP=(,CATLG,DELETE),RECFM=FB,LRECL=80,
//             VOL=(,,,3),SPACE=(CYL,(50,50),RLSE)   
//SYSIN     DD *                                     
PROC CPORT LIBRARY=COPYIN FILE=COPYOUT;               
  SELECT   Name1 Name2 Name3;                         

Ftp the file BINARY FORMAT and then run PROC CIMPORT on the target machine to import the SAS data in perfect health.

Use PROC XPORT or PROC CPORT/CIMPORT. Using the direct server connection method works only if you have SAS/ACCESS installed on both the PC and the mainframe, and then you have to do some configuration to get them connected.

Then I have tried for CPORT..Below is the code..

Code:

    SELECT CLAIM_AUS;                   
run;                                     


and transferred successfully to the FTP server with Type BINARY FORMAT.

When opened thru PC-SAS, I received the error as
Code:

"ERROR: File TMP1.CLAIM_AUS.DATA is not a SAS dataset. TMP1.CLAIM_AUS cannot be opened."

Did you use PROC CIMPORT on the transport file or just try to read it as a SAS file? You must use PROC CIMPORT to process the file before you can use the SAS file that was transferred.

My Client uses the below code to download a SAS dataset present in Mainframe using PC-SAS as below:-

Code:

libname tmp1
'C:\Documents and Settings\Client\My Documents\dat\FOLDER_ANY';

/*--------------------------------------------------------------*/
/* SIGNON Mainframe and Download SAS Library                    */
/*--------------------------------------------------------------*/
%let host = HOST_NAME;
options remote = host;
options comamid= tcp;
filename rlink '!sasroot\connect\saslink\Client.scr';
signon;
/*--------------------------------------------------------------*/
rsubmit;
  libname dest clear;
  libname dest 'SAS dataset on Mainframe' disp=shr;
  proc download   inlib   = dest
                  outlib  = TMP1
                  memtype = data;
  run;
endrsubmit;
signoff;


When this code has been executed, the TMP1 library will contain the sas dataset downloaded in *.SAS7BDAT format. She just double clicks it to open it in Table editor(present in PC-SAS) to view the data...

Now the above process needs to be automated in Mainframe side.. So I have to do with out writing any code in PC-SAS again...which means that I should not write a code(PROC CIMPORT) to view the data....

Hope you got my problem bit clear now....

So why save some rather important piece of information until AFTER people have tried to help you. Do you not think that this significant piece of information may have been better offerd from the start of your thread.

Since the last line says that "readily openable", I thought you people might have understood that...

Past is past... Now from the latest & updated post, can anyone provide me the solution...[/b]

Have you tried a straight FTP of the SAS dataset to the PC ?

Trasferred directly to FTP server in Binary mode, when double clicked the *.sas7bdat file, I have received

I recommend you contact SAS and open a problem report to get help. I do not know if what you're wanting to do can be done in the way you're wanting to do it. The only way to know for sure is by getting SAS Institute to help you.
