    Post How to 'Call a SAS Program routine in C# program?

    Hello,

    I am not a .NET or C# programmer at all. But I had to work on this project which has a C# program which is running some SAS code in that.

    The current code in the .CS program is:
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    public System.Data.DataSet GetLibraries(string ADUser)
    {
    object obj3;
    Connection activeConnection = this.GetConnection();
    string aDGroups = this.GetADGroups(ADUser);
    string str2 = "select distinct lec || ' ' || lib as lib, libpath from lib.adxlibpath";
    Recordset aDODBRecordSet = new RecordsetClass();
    Command command = new CommandClass();
    command.ActiveConnection = activeConnection;
    command.CommandText = @"libname lib 'C:\sas\sasdata'";
    object missing = Type.Missing;
    command.Execute(out obj3, ref missing, -1);
    command.CommandText = "create table temp as " + str2 + " where ADGroup in (" + aDGroups + ")";
    command.Execute(out obj3, ref missing, -1);
    aDODBRecordSet.Open("temp", activeConnection, CursorTypeEnum.adOpenUnspecified, LockTypeEnum.adLockUnspecified, -1);
    OleDbDataAdapter adapter = new OleDbDataAdapter();
    System.Data.DataSet dataSet = new System.Data.DataSet();
    adapter.Fill(dataSet, aDODBRecordSet, "libraries");
    activeConnection.Close();
    return dataSet;
    }
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    In this code, a SAS code is being run which creates a table called 'TEMP' which is used as input in the further 'public' codes.

    Now, I need to change this piece of code to call a SAS code routine residing on our server instead of embedding the code in this C# program.

    Can anyone please let me know how can I do that?

    What I tried is in the secode 'string' statement above, I just defined str2 = "%INC \\path\program.sas" and given 'command.CommandText = str2'. Obviously this is not working

    I am not at all into C# programming. If you can help me do this task, that would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks much guys!

    Regards,
    BK.

    Hmmm... can anyone respond to this query please? This is a huge project for me and I am able to do nothing so far.

    Also, how can we pass parameters from C# to SAS routine that I will be calling in C#?

    Thanks a lot.

    Did you not consider that perhaps you just didn't have anyone come accross your post that does anything with "SAS program routines"? If I haven't done it, I'm not going to waste your time querying you further on it... just a thought...

    I want to call a batch file. But Batch file can not run from ASP.net program So I am planing to call the .sas file from ASP.net using IOM. That .sas file contains macros also. Any Idea how to call a .sas from ASP.net page?
