Q: How can I create a data set with information about Windows folders?
A: Use the Directory-List-Windows macro.
%macro DIRLISTWIN ( PATH /* Windows path of directory to examine */ , MAXDATE= /* [optional] maximum date/time of file to report */ , MINDATE= /* [optional] minimum date/time of file to report */ , MAXSIZE= /* [optional] maximum size of file to report (bytes) */ , MINSIZE= /* [optional] minimum size of file to report (bytes) */ , OUT= /* [optional] name of output file containing results of %DIRLISTWIN */ , REPORT=Y /* [optional] flag controlling report creation */ , REPORT1=N /* [optional] flag controlling 1-line report creation */ , SUBDIR=Y /* [optional] include subdirectories in directory processing */ );/* PURPOSE: create listing of files in specified directory to make evident NOTE: %DIRLISTWIN is designed to be run on SAS installations using the Windows O/S
