|SAS/ACCESS Interface to IMS-DL/I Software
SAS/ACCESS software provides
an interface between the SAS System and the IMS-DL/I 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-DL/I databases from
a SAS program using the view descriptor files created with the ACCESS procedure
- extract data from IMS-DL/I databases and place
them in a SAS data file using the ACCESS procedure, the DATA step, or other
- update, insert, or delete data in IMS-DL/I databases
using the SQL procedure, SAS/FSP software,
the APPEND procedure, or the MODIFY statement. The MODIFY statement can be
used with the IMS-DL/I interface view engine, and supports REPLACE, DELETE,
and INSERT calls.
- issue DL/I calls to update, insert, and delete
data in IMS-DL/I databases using the DATA step interface's INFILE, INPUT,
FILE, and PUT statements.
