View Data Windows
View Data Window
The View Data window is available in the tree views on the desktop and in process
flows in the Job Editor. It works in two modes: browse and edit. The browse mode
enables you to view the data displayed in a SAS table or view, in an external file, in a
temporary output table displayed in a process flow diagram, or in a DBMS table or view
that is part of a SAS library for DBMS data stores. The table, view, or external file must
be registered and must exist in physical storage.
Use the edit mode to perform simple editing operations on the data in the View Data
window. For example, you can overwrite the data in a cell, copy and paste rows of data,
and delete data. You can even create completely new tables. However, this editing mode
is enabled only on SAS tables that are stored in a Base SAS engine library that is
assigned to a SAS Workspace Server.
The View Data window typically uses the metadata for a data store to format the data for
display. Accordingly, the View Data window can be used to verify that the metadata for
a data store is appropriate for use in the intended job. If the window does not correctly
