Write Different CSV Outputs to Same Excel Sheet

Hello Friends,

 

I am trying to automate an excel report in SAS.

 

I have different CSV files being generated by SAS. Is it possible to dynamically write the rows of these files to a new excel sheet (single sheet). For example, rows 1-20 of csv file 1 written to rows 1-20 of Report.xlsx, rows 1-10 of csv file 2 written to rows 22-40 of Report.xlsx and so on. Bascially I need the ability to control where in the new Excel Sheet (Report.xlsx) the csv contents are written (control rows/cells/columns) etc.

 

Your ideas would be really helpful. Thanks for your help!!

Re: Write Different CSV Outputs to Same Excel Sheet

I assume you have those CSV files as SAS datasets too, and you create the CSV from those?  If so (and you have SAS 9.4) you can use the libname excel to write to various parts of an Excel file:

Personally however, I would use VBA in Excel, to load the CSV files, and process them into the spreadsheet, if you have to use Excel at all.
