Proc Pwencode

proc pwencode in='my password';
run;

 

FILENAME PwdFile "d:\book1.xls" ;
PROC PWENCODE IN='myPassword' OUT= PwdFile ;
RUN ;

 

 

Note:

I run the above codes and have encoded the file (attached).  If I receive the excel and have in non-SAS environment, may i know how to decode the excel file?

Re: Proc Pwencode

The excel file itself is a normal excel file and can be opened anywhere. As for the password, it cannot be decoded outside the sas environment.
