Subject: SAS/Intrnet file uploads?
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii
We have a Microsoft Access aaplication that we'd really like to move to SAS/Intrnet.
Unfortunately, the major input to the program is a dBase file, which can be as large as several megabytes. Users of the application could create a text file containing the information, but it would still be quite large, too large to paste into a single HTML form field, and using multiple fields would create severe user interface problems.
The ideal solution would be for SAS/Intrnet to support file upload, but it doesn't, and there are no plans for it to do so. Has anyone else encountered this problem, and do you have a workaround? The user systems and the SAS/Intrnet host do not have a shared file system or NFS.
