|Subject: ||Re: Reading SAS files from ACL|
Have you looked into the SAS Universal ODBC driver? It's available from SAS
and gives you read access to native SAS files from other ODBC compliant
apps. Documentation is available on the SAS web site at
http://www.sas.com/products/uodbc/index.html . You can download the driver
for a 30 day trial before committing to purchase.

was an acronym which meant "Audit Command Language", but like SAS, they're
currently trying to get away from having their name used as an acronym.

of my colleagues. ACL is ODBC-compliant. I would like to know how to
access SAS data files from ACL, using ODBC. Does anybody have any clues for
me? Whenever I try to access a SAS data file from outside of the SAS
System, SAS is invoked. Is that necessary? Or is there some way to
configure my ODBC driver to give me access to SAS files from outside of SAS,
namely from ACL?
