I am attempting to export data to an excel workbook. However, I am getting an error message in the log that the XLSX file cannot be created. Please help.
Here is the code I am using:
libname xlout xlsx "&outpath/southpacific.xlsx";
proc means data=pg1.storm_final noprint maxdec=1;
output out=xlout.Season_Stats n=Count mean=AvgMaxWindKM max=StrongestWindKM;
libname xlout clear;
Here is the log:
Please post the log again. Run the %LET, the LIBNAME and the DATA step all at once.
I see this in the log "/home/u61133731/", which tells me you are using SAS Ondemand for Academics:
Your macro variable, outpath should be something like:
%let outpath = /home/u61133731;
if you want to create your excel directly in the Files(home) directory,
Or if you have folders under Files(home) like EPG1V2/output it would look like:
%let outpath = /home/u61133731/EPG1V2/output;
%let outpath = ~/EPG1V2/output;
(hint - you can use ~ to point to your user home directory)
