I haven't tried this, but I think what you want to do is:

1. In PROC SQL, use the CONNECT statement to connect to SQL Server (instead of the implicit connection with a LIBNAME statement), 2. Use EXECUTE statements to execute your SET statement, then your INSERT statement, 3. Use DISCONNECT to close the connection.

This makes sure that the SET IDENTITY_INSERT gets passed to SQL Server, which understands it. SAS doesn't have a clue, as you found out.

Hope this helps!

I'm working with SAS Enterprise Guide and trying to do a SQL Insert to a SQL Database table. I need to set IDENTITY_INSERT to ON. The SQL command is "Set Identity_Insert <table name> On". I can't get PROC SQL to recognize this command or pass it to the SQL database. I'm trying to do this via SEG and not SQL Enterprise Manager so that the table build/maintenance process will be a one button process and not have the user get the SQL DBA to do the Insert via DTS. Any ideas? Thanks.

proc sql; set IDENTITY_INSERT SQLTEST1.sys_df_standard on; insert into SQLTEST1.sys_df_standard select standard_uid, field_to_standardize, standard_table_source, standard_cd, standard_cd_descr, incoming_val from dfpower.standard_tbl;
