I have used PROC IMPORT to input a single EXCEL spreadsheet with no problem. Someone has asked me how they can import 1,100 spreadsheets at once. They all have similar names and are all in the same directory. Is there a way to use either a wildcard (eg. 'C:\temp\file*.xls') of a FILEVAR to identify the input files? I know that I could use a macro but I'm just being lazy.
Here are my 2 cents, I didn't use Excel file name as the import dataset name, because some file might start with numeric or contains space or longer than what SAS required, but you can always change what you want.
