PROC IMPORT may be good enough. For your external just make a
filename statement that points to it. I use PARMCARDS as the datafile
so the program would be self contained.
filename ft15f001 temp;
proc import replace datafile=ft15f001 out=work.test dbms=csv;
getnames = NO;
W123, xc23451, dfh254612879
W212365871, dx231, agf25
xcv23, dfgh58945xcvb, ascdf254612879
