How to download/upload a SAS dataset from server to your local machine

There is a neat way the EG offers you to download SAS datasets.
Under a menu bar, there are a options

  • "Tasks" - "Data" - "Upload Data Files to Server" and 
  •  "Tasks" - "Data" - "Download Data Files to PC" 
In case of "Download Data Files to PC", you need to choose a dataset you want to transfer.

My humble suggestion is to first subset the original dataset to a temporal dataset you exactly need, and download only the temporal dataset.
