I have some SAS code that writes out to a sheet in an Excel workbook. Currently I'm just using proc export dbms=excelcs but can also use libname with pcfiles if neccesary. Is it possible for SAS to save the workbook with a different name after it's finished writing out to the sheet it updates?sas

Are you using SAS Office Add In? or Base SAS?
And what kind of name would you like? If you specify a new workbook in your proc export it will go to that workbook, but how will you specify it.

I'm opening an existing workbook, writing out a new sheet, and then I want to save the workbook with a different name. Basically the workbook is a template, so I want to open the template, write out the new data and then save it so it reflects the data in there. This way I can run my code multiple times and end up with multiple workbooks populated instead of having to put a new template workbook in the folder each time. With proc export is it possible to specify a workbook to open and then specify a different one to save as?

No, but you can use some other options, such as x command to copy and save the work book with a different name and then export to that new file.
Can you provide more info, specifically, operating system, excel version, if you have X command

SAS is running on 64-bit linux and I have Excel 2010. I'm not sure if we X command but I do know we have SAS/ACCESS Interface to PC Files and have the PCFILES Server set up.
Thanks a lot for your help!
