You have the syntax a bit off.  Here I create a TEMP file write to it and use a data step to look at.

filename FT48F001 temp;
proc export data=sashelp.class outfile=FT48F001 replace DBMS=DLM;
   DELIMITER='01'x;
  
PUTNAMES=no;
   run;


data _null_;
  
infile FT48F001;
   input;
  
list;
  
run;

Like data_null_ suggests:

1. remove the semicolon after dbms=dlm

2. change your delimiter option from delimiter='01x'; to

     delimiter='01'x;

but also 3.  end your outfile statement filename with a single quote since you began it with a single quote.
