LSH SAS loadset fails if record size is more than the buffer size that is hard coded in Oracle SAS Loadset adapter code.

Following is a sample error message.

ERROR: The record size (220208) is bigger than the available buffer size (65520). You may want to consider using the PROC SQL buffersize= option to increase the buffer size for PROC SQL.


1) Create a Loadset and upload the Table Definition (TD) from the test SAS file.
2) Update the TD column length to 4000.
3) Create the Table Instance from existing Table Definition
4) Install the Loadset and submit.
