Re: Import Excel File

You do not provide enough information.  Is SAS installed locally on the machine?  If so you should just be able to point to a file on the network e.g:

proc import datafile="\\somewhere\inthisdirectory\isthefile.xlsx" out=want replace;



If you use server based SAS, get your IT team to map any necessary drives in the startup, and assign correct access rights.
