Need to use proc export to send data to Excel 2007 file with file extension .xlsx. I have Base SAS v9.2 for Windows, using Windows XP Professional operating system.
Does anybody have a DBMS reference that will work when exporting .xlsx files using proc export?
I have tried DBMS = excelcs and it works from time to time but I haven't been able to find anything that will work in every situation. According to some SAS documentation you should be able to use "excel2007". This makes sense but it has not worked for me.
I have seen some mention that if you don't have phase 2 of version 9.2 there is no good way, but I wanted to see if anybody here has been able to work around this.

The note mentions some possible workarounds.
