You do NOT need to "import" a .sas7bdat file, as it already is a table in native SAS format. The .sas7bdat format can (mostly) be opened across all SAS versions from 8.0 upwards.
So all you need to do is to define a SAS library with the LIBNAME statement, pointing to the directory where the .sas7bdat is stored, and - voila! - you can use libname.tablename anywhere a SAS table name is needed in your program.
If you experience problems doing this, you will have to supply additional information about your SAS environment (OS platform(s), logical/physical locations etc). And what is in your log if a statement fails to execute properly.
