  • MRO is built on open source R so in general you might try using the RODBC or RJDBC packages.  You can also search for packages designed for use with specific databases using 'Explore packages' on the MRAN site:

  • Hello Thanks for the reply, yes I notice these packages and are compatible. But could not get specific information on VSAM file reading. Any inputs on this would be helpful.
