Introduction

This page contains information on many of the tools currently available or under development for use with Dataset-XML files. Dataset-XML is a new CDISC XML Technologies standard developed as a data transport format for representing SDTM, SEND, ADaM, and legacy datasets. Dataset-XML functions as an alternative to SAS Version 5 Transport (XPT) for the transmission of datasets. More information can be found on this standard at the CDISC web site.

SAS Clinical Standards Toolkit
  • Dataset-XML support (writing/reading/validation) will be part of the next release of SAS® Clinical Standards Toolkit. Updated information will be published at the SAS web site.
  • Support for Dataset-XML is available as a pre-production package that contains SAS macros, XML schema files, sample data, and sample programs to support the following functionality:

    • Creating Dataset-XML files from SAS data sets

    • Creating SAS data sets from Dataset-XML files

    • Validating Dataset-XML files against an XML schema

    • Comparing original SAS data sets with SAS data sets created from Dataset-XML files 

  • These macros are standalone and do not require SAS® Clinical Standards Toolkit.

The following attached .zip file  contains Dataset-XML datasets and a Define-XML file (including its HTML rendition) created by Marcelina Hungria. These Dataset-XML example files were created from the original SAS XPT files published in the SDTM-MSG V1. The example files are also part of the Dataset-XML 1.0 release package.
