Using the Import Wizard is an easy way to import data into SAS. The Import Wizard can be found on the drop down file menu. Although the Import Wizard is easy it can be time consuming if used repeatedly. The very last screen of the Import Wizard gives you the option to save the statements SAS uses to import the data so that they can be used again. The following is an example that uses common options and also shows that the file was imported correctly.
PROC IMPORT OUT= WORK.auto1 DATAFILE= "C:\auto.xlsx" DBMS=xlsx REPLACE; SHEET="auto"; GETNAMES=YES; RUN;
It is very easy to write out an Excel file using proc export in SAS.
Here is a sample program that writes out SAS data called mydata to an Excel file called mydata.xlsx into the directory "c:\dissertation".
