Error while exporting a SAS table

While exporting my data set from SAS to a preferred location I am getting an error " Server file missing or invalid" 

 

Code is given below :

proc export data= class2.grocery_coupons
outfile= "D:\SASExport\grocery_coupons.xls";
run;

 

I am new to SAS ,so help me in this regard.

Re: Error while exporting a SAS table

If you are using SAS University, you can not use your "local" computer location in your file reference. And also specify your engine. So you need something like this:


proc export data=class2.grocery_coupons 
DBMS=xls
outfile="/folders/myfolders/grocery_coupons.xls";
run;

Also, make sure that you have the license for SAS/ACCESS to PC File Formats.
