Import SAS Transport Files
Raw clinical trial data is frequently transmitted in compressed SAS transport ( .cpt or .xpt ) files. Check this option to convert the SAS transport files into SAS data sets.
Running the Add Study... or Combine Studies report, with this option checked, decompresses the SAS transport files and generates the corresponding SDTM and ADaM data sets. Output SDTM, ADaM, and MedDRA files are placed in the specified folders with their respective input .cpt or .xpt files.
To Specify This Option:
If you are accessing this option through the Combine Studies report, choose Update Study Data and Metadata for Select a task to enable this field. (Otherwise, ignore this step.)
