.sas to .sas7bdat conversion help

 

I am working with the University edition of SAS. I need help converting the .sas files to .sas7bdat, so I can use the .sas7bdat file to create a dashboard on Tableau.

 

Any help with this conversion process would be greatly helpful.

A .sas file is a program file, it's a text file, you can open it with notepad. 

A .sas7bdat file is a SAS data set. 

 

If you're having trouble importing a data set you need to provide more details.

I suspect that you may have to export the SAS datasets to another format. While Tableaux will use SAS data sets I suspect that some of the information, such as Formats and variable labels have to be supplied by a link to SAS and the University Edition, which runs in a LINUX emulator doesn't communicate properly to Tableau running in Windows.
