|Overview of the SAS/ACCESS Interface to IMS
provides an interface between SAS and the IMS database management system (DBMS).
You can perform the following tasks with this SAS/ACCESS interface:
files using the ACCESS procedure.
Directly access data in IMS databases from a SAS
program using the view descriptor files created with the ACCESS procedure.
Extract data from IMS databases and place it in
a SAS data file using the ACCESS procedure, the DATA step, or other SAS procedures.
Update, insert, or delete data in IMS databases
using the SQL procedure, SAS/FSP software,
the APPEND procedure, or the MODIFY statement. The MODIFY statement can be
used with the IMS interface view engine, and supports REPLACE, DELETE, and
Issue DL/I calls to update, insert, and delete
data in IMS databases using the DATA step interface's INFILE, INPUT, FILE,
and PUT statements.
