Subject:      Re: DBF to SAS and back

I've written macros to read and write DBF files a few years ago. I'm not at home just now, but tonight I'll look for them. Maybe I find them at Uni Heidelberg's website.

What I found there up to now, is a macro, not mine, to read DBF data into a SAS dataset, but not the other direction.

If I find more, I post it. Gerhard
