Parameters | Import | Number of Data Files to Process at a Time

Number of Data Files to Process at a Time
Select the number of raw data files to merge into the main data table at once. This parameter helps manage import of large sets of data files.
When selecting the number of files to merge at once using this parameter, you should be aware of your free hard disk space and the number of data files being imported. When hard drive space is limited, you should select to merge files in smaller groups (for example, 25-50 files at a time). However, performance is best when merging data files in larger groups, so if free hard drive space is not limited, you might be able to import and merge hundreds or even thousands of data files at a time.
Caution: Merging files in groups too large to be stored on the drive where the SAS temp directory is located can cause 'out of disk space' errors. Please check your computer's available hard drive space by right-clicking on the drive letter, clicking Properties, and viewing the pie chart of available disk space.
