Import interface: [Relational Database] Data Store (Physical Data Model) via SPK File from SAS Library
Import bridge: 'SasDb' 11.0.0

This bridge imports SAS Database metadata.

The bridge reads the definition of Libraries and Tables from an SPK package file.
The file may contains multiple libraries of different engine types, implemented on multiple servers.
Thus you must specify the Library Engine to use and which server you wish to import from.

Please work with your SAS administrator to generate the required SPK file which must contain the proper Libraries, Servers, and Tables you wish to import.
