Thanks for the code. Looks like setting the delimiter how you have it below
doesn't quite work. I played with it and used double quotes around the
colon. That seems to get it to work.
infile test dsd dlm=delimiter lrecl=1000;
The other infile works great as well.

Subject: Infile with DSD, DLM and Hex delimiter
I am working on an import program for raw data out of a machine. It comes
as colon delimited for the most part (it's possible to get two colons in a
row for missing, thus the dsd.) But it also has carriage returns, '0D'x,
that function as delimiters.
When I try infile filename dsd dlm=": '0D'x"; SAS says dsd won't work with
the quotes in the dlm for the hex character.
Is there any other way to specify this delimiter to dlm, or any way to
mimic dsd so that this infile will work?
