Subject: get data loop
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1"
I need to run the following syntax for a series of files:
GET DATA /TYPE = TXT
/FILE = "C:\43325-int-1022.txt"
/DELCASE = LINE
/DELIMITERS = "|"
/ARRANGEMENT = DELIMITED
/FIRSTCASE = 2
/IMPORTCASE = ALL
The first five characters in the file name correspond to an id number. There
are 4 of them (non-consecutive). The last 4 characters correspond to a
date-- mmdd (also non-consecutive).
Is there a way to write a script that will cycle through the dates for each
id number, and through the id numbers? (I am almost ready to use the copy
and paste method 8-)
Thanks in advance
