Subject: SAS (MVS Mainframe) extract from SAS dataset
I have the output from a SAS program that I need to read, identify fields
and place in a dataset to be read by a COBOL program. The program that
created the SAS dataset had many APPENDS with DROPS / KEEPS. I looked in
the file and saw that it had the field variable names prefixed by "NAME"
and then the data. Is there a way to read the file, identify the fields
and isolate each record?
