Subject:      Change/update/modify existing Oracle tables with the SAS data step
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-15; format=flowed

Dear SAS-lers,

BACKGROUND: We are using oracle (with a web-frontend) as backend for data-entry in a large epidemiological study. SAS used to be our fine tool for data cleaning and finishing for scientic use of the data in the past. We have several personnell, who ara good in SAS, but don't know any "oracle". So now we are discussing with the oracle heads, whether and how we can change/update/modify existing oracle tables from SAS using the data step.

AIM: We want to use SAS and the data step for all the nice features, but work on oracle tables as if working with SAS-tables. How do people "normally" change existing oracle tables from SAS?

SYSTEM: It is SAS 9.1 on WIN-XP. We have licensed access to oracle, access to odbc etc.

Any hints welcome!
