Overview of the SAS/ACCESS Interface to CA-IDMS

Introduction to SAS/ACCESS DATA Step Interface to CA-IDMS

SAS/ACCESS software provides a DATA step interface between SAS and Computer Associates' Integrated Data Management System (CA-IDMS). Through the DATA step, you can use INPUT statements and special extensions on the INFILE statement to access or extract data from the CA-IDMS database.

Note:    The DATA step interface enables only read access to CA-IDMS data. You cannot update CA-IDMS data through the SAS/ACCESS interface to CA-IDMS.  [cautionend]

This document describes the DATA step interface and how to write CA-IDMS INFILE and INPUT statements.
