I prefer to leave data where it resides as much as possible.
Has anyone suggested using the FTP engine in the filename statement in SAS ?
That way david.rucker@PRODIGY.NET can leave the raw data on unix, while processing on the sas platform.
He could even arrange to route results directly through ftp to the destination platform of choice.
The equivalent for libname statements is the CDEA engine ( or SASSFIO in v6 ).

For ASCII-mode file transfers, Reflections for MS Windows supports Unix
shell commands and scripts. Select the split screen option under VIEW.
Check the shell command sequences produced by interactive file transfers for
You might actually find it easier to use the Reflections visual interface
for most purposes. For the same mode of transfer (binary or ASCII), hold
down the Ctrl key while you select file names displayed on the screen.
Reflections will transfer all of those marked. For transfers of much larger
numbers of files, consider zipping the directories under Unix and
transferring the zip file (binary mode) and expanding it under MS Windows.
This latter method speeds up the transfers as well as the time required to
do the zipping. Sig

I was hoping that someone might have some code that would allow you to
transfer files (programs, text, etc.) from UNIX to PC. I currently use

writting the code on the PC side using SAS V8.1. Thanks in advance for your
