Hello,

I am new to SAS 9.2 and trying to import an excel 2003 data to SAS by using following code.

PROC IMPORT out= ds_api
datafile= "C:\RawData - 201001.xls"
dbms = excel2000 replace;
range="API PACS$";
getnames=yes;
RUN;

However I got error message

ERROR: DBMS type EXCEL2000 not valid for import

Does anyone know the reason and how to fix it? Thanks!

Suggest searching the SAS support http://support.sas.com/ website - here is a SAS usage note that may apply:

Usage Note 33228: An error occurs when you use SAS® 9.2 to import or export Microsoft Excel or Access files in the Windows x64 and Windows Vista 64 environments

PROC IMPORT OUT= ds_api
DATAFILE= 'C:\RawData - 201001.xls
DBMS=EXCEL REPLACE;
RANGE="API PACS$";
GETNAMES=YES;
MIXED=NO;
SCANTEXT=YES;
USEDATE=YES;
SCANTIME=YES;
RUN;
