how can I export a sas data set for a folder in my PC keeping the format data set of .sas7bdat

Hi,

 

I have an excel file that i want to import to SAS Guide and then export the same file in format sas7bdat for my pc folder.

 

I know how to import the file in excel, but i don´t know how to export this  with extension sas7bdat for my pc.

 

Thanks

Not sure I follow this question. There is no need to "export" as SAS dataset from SAS. SAS datasets are the native format for SAS.

 

If you want to make the file 'mydata.sas7bdat' in the directory 'mydir' then you can either create a libref that points to that directory and use a two level name.

libname out 'mydir';
data out.mydata ;
  ....
run;

Or just put quotes around the physical name.

data 'mydir/mydata';
   ....
run;

Are you asking how to download a file from your SAS server to your PC?
