Re: Exporting output in .txt files

Hi,

I am having SAS Snippet to directly export the any SAS dataset in .txt format based on the structure of that SAS dataset...You can find the attached file to solve your question...Hope it meets your requirements...

This snippet i developed where i have not considered Delimeter facility so by default it will put space between the variables as delimeter...

Re: Exporting output in .txt files

What software are you "uploading into" and what OS is it running on?
