Can a person use excel data in SAS?


To use an excel file in SAS you will need to save the file as a '.csv' file. This is a choice in the 'Save As' pull-down menu. This will convert the file into a comma delimited file. In your SAS syntax you will need to define that file as having a comma delimiter. The program below defines the delimiter as a comma.

   Data E; 
   infile 'book1.csv' dlm=',' missover;
   input cage mage div;
   proc freq;
   tables cage mage;
