The first step doesn't involve any programming.  The first step is for you to decide what variable name you would like to use for each of the 11 columns of data.  Valid names in SAS begin with a letter (or an underscore) and contain up to 32 characters (letters, numbers, and underscores).  Once you have done that, there are many posters on this board who can help with the next steps.

Re: Reading Data into SAS

If it didn't work, post your code and log. We can't see the errors on your computer otherwise. 

 

Post a sample of the file. We can't work off of images. 

 

Try some of the options in the link above.

Re: Reading Data into SAS

Get rid of "dsd".  That should be enough to get it to run.  DSD implies that commas instead of blanks should be the delimiters between fields.
