As the first step in the decommissioning of sasCommunity.org the site has been converted to read-only mode.
Here are some tips for How to share your SAS knowledge with your professional network.
Limiting File Download Size Using SAS/Connect
SAS/CONNECT software can be used to to download a subset of a _LARGE_ SAS data set from your UNIX server to your Workstation. You can apply a WHERE statement (or WHERE data set option) to your PROC DOWNLOAD, like this:
proc download data=TwoHundredYearHistoryFile out=HistoryForNineteenSeventryThree; where year = 1973; run;
proc download data=TwoHundredYearHistoryFile(where=(year = 1973)) out=HistoryForNineteenSeventryThree; run;
…so the HistoryForNineteenSeventryThree SAS data set will only have the subset of observations from the large SAS data set where the year is equal to 1973.
