SAS skills with Mainframe you can find many jobs. SAS (Statistical Analysis System) is used in Mainframe for creating reports. For Mainframe professionals, learning and working on SAS is not a difficult task. The tutorial would explain how to run SAS macro using Mainframe JCL.
SAS is a macro level programming language. We can write programs with SAS. In the MVS environment, we can use both On-line and Batch JCL to execute SAS macros.
SAS with MVS (Batch);
Sample JCL to run SAS:
//SASSTP1 EXEC SAS6 //INPUT1 DD DSN=Inputfile,DISP=SHR //OUTPUT1 DD DSN=Outputfile,DISP=OLD //SYSIN DD * DATA WORK.M; INFILE INPUT1; INPUT FILELD1 $1-10 FILELD2 $11-20; IF FIELD1= ‘22GCPMGGCAP’; RUN; /*
The above is best example, where it reads input file and filters for matching record and write into output file.
After executes RUN, it writes records into o/p file. Just grab my favourite book to start your SAS learning.
