Subject: Correction: Summary of "How to Save a generated dataset as .txt
Content-Type: text/plain; format=flowed
Hi, thanks Michael,
The code of second solution does miss the Output. So it is perfect and not
needed any debug.
Thanks to all the respondents to "How to Save a generated dataset as .txt
file?" Next I summed up 3 kinds of solutions suggested by over ten persons.
1. FILE--most often proposed--I will adopt this method;
data _null_; set tt;
file "File Name"
put @1 X @ 11 E @ 21 Y;
2. LIBNAME and Data (proposed by Nancy and Michael Thomas)--There might be a
little bit further debug on the followed code.
* Issue LIBNAME statement for directory where dataset is to be stored;
libname save 'c:\sas\sasdata';
Do I = 1 to 10;
X = 100*RANUNI(0);
E = 50*NORMAL(10);
Y = 5*X + E;
3. DM ---I guess this is one of the simplest one. Just as David Ward(the
proposor) said, " You will be pleased with the results. This technique
makes use of SAS's external file interface SCL application, which they have
provided a means of calling in batch (without the wizard)." I agree.
dm "dexport libname.dataset 'c:\temp\temp.txt' replace";
dm "dexport libname.dataset 'c:\temp\temp.csv' replace";
I hope the above summary will be benificial all the sasers, esp. the
beginner, just like me.
