- You cannot upload a SAS data set to an external
file or an external file to a SAS data set.
- If you upload to a remote host file that is defined
with a fixed (F) record format, all records in the file are padded with blanks
to the logical record length.
- Remember that the UPLOAD procedure executes on
the remote host SAS System. You must use the RSUBMIT command, not the SUBMIT
command, to execute the PROC UPLOAD step.
- The rate at which files are transferred varies
based on the size and number of files that are being transferred and the processing
load on the remote host, as well as the communication access method that is
being used and the network configuration. The Transfer Status window keeps
you informed of the progress of the transfer. See Transfer Status Window for more information.
- If PROC UPLOAD
successfully completes the file
transfer, the macro variable SYSINFO is set to 0. If the file transfer is
not successfully completed, the macro variable SYSINFO is set to a value greater
than 0. You can pass the value of the SYSINFO macro variable back to the local
host by using the %SYSRPUT statement. See %SYSRPUT Statement for more details.
- To upload a text file with a record
is greater than 132 bytes, the option LRECL must be specified in both the
local and remote FILENAME statements.
