Hello Bruce,

Those are very specific requirements, and you might not be able to resolve all of them with a single tool.

I know the SEER Data Viewer (https://seer.cancer.gov/tools/dataviewer/) can be used to filter data, recode variables and re-create data files. The current version only supports the fixed-columns format, but it will support XML in the near future and you would be able to apply the same processing on XML data. I am not sure that tool will be able to handle all those requirements, but it might be worth for you to investigate it now and see how well it fits your processes.

It is possible that somebody will come up with a way to read and write large XML data files with SAS, but so far those attempts have not been very successful and so looking into other available tools might be a good idea at this point.
