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.
