Subject: Make directory listing available as a macro variable
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1"
SAS 8.2, Windows.
We have directories such as c:\excel .
I want to be able to include the names of the files in this directory into a
SAS macro variable so I can then use that macro variable in a program that
imports all of the excel files in a directory. It looks like I might be
able to use a pipe command to get the dir listing into a flat file but I
have not figured this out yet.
Any help would be appreciated.
