Does anyone know if there is a file size limit for inputting a SAS data set? The file size I am trying to import is 184 MB. The code is:

> sashome<-"C:/Program Files/SAS Institute/SAS/V8"
> input.data<-read.ssd( file.path("G:/DATA/Cam/ECPATH/FIM"),"tbm_c",
+ sascmd=file.path(sashome,"sas.exe") )

The return message is:

SAS failed. SAS program at
C:\DOCUME~1\CAMERO~1.GUE\LOCALS~1\Temp\Rtmp17498\file11436.sas The log file will be file11436.log in the current directory Warning message:
