Depends on your licensing. Do you have the SAS Access to PCFILES license?

 

If you do, you should be able to export it to a mdb file.

The option to export data to MS Access (.mdb) with the GUI methods is not available with the 64bit version of Enterprise Guide, but is available in the 32bit client versions. If you have SAS/Access to PC Files licensed on the server, an alternative method is to use PROC EXPORT code.

Access can import csv files, which can be created with a data step without any special licensing needed. And it avoids the 32/64 bit hassles.
