Limiting File Download Size Using SAS/Connect

From sasCommunity
Jump to: navigation, search

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;

...or...

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.
