putnames

Hi all,

I am trying to export a data table to txt file WITHOUT the column headers. I feel like I am doing this correctly but I keep getting the statement is not valid or used out of order error. What am I doing wrong?

PROC EXPORT DATA= WORK.Final

OUTFILE= "C:\Documents and Settings\dubauaw\Desktop\r1.txt"
DBMS=TAB REPLACE;
putnames = no;
RUN;

Re: putnames

dbms option should be dlm for delimited and delimiter='09'x I think.

proc export data=sashelp.class outfile='c:\temp\test.txt' dbms=dlm replace;
delimiter='09'x;
putnames = no;
run;

Re: putnames

I found PUTNAMES documented with SAS 9.2 -- I too received the same error when using it with SAS 9.1.3.
