You're not too familiar with SAS, either, are you? SAS can read anything in any file on the mainframe. As long as you have the format specified correctly, SAS will read the data and allow you to use it.
SAS cannot read since ISPF Table is not in a readable format.
Learn SAS before you come up with another such ridiculous statement. I have used SAS to read load modules before so data does not have to be in readable format for SAS to handle it. The SAS examples file has code to read the directory of a PDS directly -- which certainly is not in a readable format.
