No, its not.  SAS can create Excel files with data, formatting, and some features, like formulas.  It does not however encapsulate the whole suite of Excel abilities.  To do such a thing you would create your template Excel file, and get that to read in your data from a SAS exported file, or have some VBA code to create it from an exported file.

If your that into using Excel that you need these types of things, then why bother with SAS?  Just dump out to CSV, then have Excel/VBA process that data into the format you need.
