Example 13. Re-creating an Index for a Data Transfer

This example shows the re-creation of an index for a SAS data set to be transferred to a server session.
proc upload index=yes in=sales out=sales(index=(region));
The INDEX=YES option specifies that an index will be re-created in the server session. The INDEX= REGION option causes an index file to be re-created and associated with the data set SALES in the server session. The index file identifies all the observations that contain the variable REGION and its associated values.
If the INDEX= option in the OUT= statement had not been specified, an existing index associated with the SALES data set in the client session could have been copied to the server session.
