Subject: Variable length record - occurs 1 -100 times
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1
I have a variable length tape file and at the end there is a section
of data where it begins like this:
(TRAN-AREA OCCURS 1 TO 100 TIMES
Then depending on the COUNTER, this records repeats horizontally for
as many times as the COUNTER is.
Has anybody out there wrote SAS code (which I think is a do loop of
sorts) in order to read such records?
Thanks for your help.
