Subject: Re: schedule downloading in SAS
Unfortunately, BASE doesn't do scheduling in the fashion you want.
Depending on the operating system of the computer you are using, there are scheduling packages on most if not all of them to allow you to define such a schedule. You would put your program together, and then have the scheduler run SAS < your_file_goes_here on the frequency/at the time required.
Without more information, such as computer (OS/390 vs. Windows 2000), helpful hints won't take you very far.

hello, list, this must be a simple question, but i do not know how:
can i tell sas to hit a URL, say, 'http://www......../data.exe ' every
morning at 4:00 am to download the data called data.exe, and then run it to
self-extract the data, and read the raw data (.dat file) into sas? can all
these be done by only using SAS/BASE?
