Fax Appendix 2: Sample Code for Staging the Data

Table Of ContentsIT Service Vision Help

This is the SAS code used to stage the data from the fax log. When you want to run this code, you can submit it from the SAS PROGRAM EDITOR window or in a SAS procedure in batch/background.

Note: Do not submit it yet. Wait until you append the code, from Fax Appendix 3, for generating the definitions.

filename faxlog 'fax.log' ;

data work.faxes(drop=date time label='Fax Activity');
