Cross-Environment Data Access (CEDA)

Reading and Writing a Foreign File

After a foreign file has been transferred across the network to the target computer, and if the target computer runs SAS 8 or later, the target computer can read and write the SAS file. A target computer can transparently access a foreign file for reading or writing, but not for updating the files.

You can read and write, but you cannot update the files.

Note:   Additional resources are consumed each time you read or write a foreign file.   [cautionend]
