And what is your problem? If you get ERRORs or WARNINGs, post the log. Otherwise describe what does not work as intended.

Try adding the an engine to your LIBNAME:

libname apple XLS 'C:\Users\Documents\Sales.xls';

Your spreadsheet need to to contain a tab called Sales as well.

When programming you have to first ensure that the prior code works. So currently you're trying to set up a libname to an Excel file. It appears that doesn't work. What errors do you get, post your full log from your LIBNAME statement.

Either you don't have the correct license, your code is wrong, or you need PCFILES because you have a mismatch between 32bit and 64 bit system.

Once the libname to the Excel file is set up, you can reference the different tables in the workbook but you need to know the names. PROC DATASETS is a good way to explore that to find out what names you need to use. Generally, you can use the worksheet names in the Excel workbook as data set names, but named ranges can also be a data set name and possibly Excel Tables as well these days. Also, do you have to work with an xls file or can it be an XLSX file? If you can use XLSX you have more modern options, XLS was retired about a decade ago.

thank you for your help , following is the information from log :

yes , my SAS is 64 byte, and the xls file is 32 byte , but i have install PC file server.

by the way , what's the name range?

2122 libname apple XLS 'C:\Users\Documents\Sales.xls';
ERROR: The XLS engine cannot be found.
ERROR: Error in the LIBNAME statement.

Did you try using the PCFILES engine? 

Have you ever gotten the PC Files Server to work?

thank you for your help .

yes , i try PCFILES,but it still doesn't work

i have installed the  PC files server, when i use wizard import to invert the xls files to csv files , it works well

Named ranges are an Excel concept, they allow you to create a reference to a table without having a specific sheet. 

What about the following:

 

libname apple pcfiles path= 'C:\Users\Documents\Sales.xls';

proc datasets lib=apple; run;

If the PCFILES engine works, please post your PROC DATASETS log. Does it list the worksheets in your Excel workbook?

Trying to print a table called Apple.Sales that is in an Excel workbook called Sales means you are referencing a worksheet within the workbook called Sales also. If your worksheet is not called Sales then your program will fail with an error - dataset not found.
