Export summary tables to excel

Export summary tables to excel


I've created several summary tables in SAS Enterprise Guide 4.2 and want to export all of the tables to Excel 2003. Is there a way to do this? I can export to HTML and open it with Excel, but I was hoping to simply run the process flow and automatically export into Excel. The only export file types I can export to are HTML, XML and PDF. Is this possible?

RE: Export summary tables to excel

Try XML, that might work, Excel can read XML.
What is SAS actually running on?  Are you remote submitting code to a Unix system via EG?   You should just be able to right click on the data, select "Send To" and then "Microsoft Excel".   If you can't do that, then it's likely your SAS Server doesn't have that module installed (likely it's a Unix server).
In that case, I recommend using a tagset and proc print.


ods tagsets.excelxp file="P:\blah.xls"

proc print data=dset noobs;

ods tagsets.excelxp close;
This should work regardless of what your server platform is, so long as you're running SAS 9.1 or above.
Lower than that, you'll have to just output to a CSV file or something.
