Subject: How to read the compustat files by using proc datasource?
When I try to read in the datafile (from Compustat ,S & P), I don't know why
the log file always shows' Truncated records' and thus no observation is
filename cdna <path name>; /*cdna: for file 'cdnann'*/
libname lib <lib path name>;
proc datasource filetype=csauc infile=cdna lrecl=8332;
proc print data=stocks;
however, it cannot read in any data......Can anyone help me solve this
problem? Thanks very much!
