Subject:      Re: quick question....quick answer?

Larry,

While I haven't tried it myself, I encounter a similar problem and am going to look into: http://www.conceptual.com/

They purportedly have a product, much cheaper than SAS's ODBC drivers, that allow one to import both SAS 8 files as well as a number of other formats.

I have a similar problem in that I need to read in UNIX SAS files, but don't want to continue maintaining a UNIX box just for that purpose.
