data _null_;
set sae_final_n;
file myexcel ;
put patid '09'x saeno '09'x stdytrt '09'x saediag '09'x onsetdt '09'x onsettm '09'x stopdt '09'x stoptm '09'x saecrit '09'x acttkn '09'x outcm '09'x causal '09'x grade '09'x saecomm '09'x typerept '09'x crfsaediag '09'x crfonsetdt '09'x crfonsettm '09'x crfenddt '09'x crfendtm '09'x saecrt '09'x act_tkn '09'x outcome '09'x causal '09'x intenseassctcae ;
