Data Controller for SAS: User Guide


The viewer screen provides a raw view of the underlying table. Choose a library, then a table, and click view to see the first 5000 rows. A filter option is provided should you wish to view a different section of rows.

The Download button gives three options for obtaining the current view of data:

1) CSV. This provides a comma delimited file.

2) Excel. This provides a tab delimited file.

3) SAS. This provides a SAS program with data as datalines, so that the data can be rebuilt as a SAS table.

Note - if the table is registered in Data Controller as being TXTEMPORAL (SCD2) then the download option will prefilter for the current records and removes the valid from / valid to variables. This makes the CSV suitable for DC file upload, if desired.
