Subject:      Overnight sessions of SAS/CONNECT - PC to VAX

Hi there SASlers,

I have a question regarding SAS/CONNECT. Consider the scenario of a PC MS-LAN network and a mainframe VAX cluster.

We need to run a overnight job on the PC network to copy data from the VAX to PC network. In the day, this can be done interactively using SAS/CONNECT to prompt a user for their VAX login-id and password to establish a remote connection. Is there any way to get this sort of SAS/CONNECT system to run overnight and copy from VAX to PC without having to hardcode account passwords into DOS batch files or SAS code ?

While I am at it, does anyone have any code I can use for MS-DOS to run a SAS batch job and then resubmit itself for the next night - surely this can be done ??

Any responses to private mail please as well as the list as I don't always have time to read all the digests ! (

Yours (in total MS-DOS and PC ignorance),

Bruce - long suffering Data Scientist !
