The problem is not with xlsx, but with the fact that you can't get to use the download engine to work with the https protocol. You may have to do the download externally with something like wget, and then read the files locally.

Remember that SAS UE is a learning tool with a limited scope and in no way designed to be used in production environments.

Hi! The HTTP Procedure is not available in SAS University Edition because the server is in a Lockdown State. This is an option set at login. You can see what options are in effect by running a "proc options;".

 

I hope this helps!

Randy
