SAS doesn't "care" about the "order" of data sets in any library. Proc Contents reports on them alphabetically by name. If you must have one procedure, Proc Contents, report them in a specific order, then name the sheets alphabetically.

 

Please describe the "need" for matching the order in the Xlsx file. What process are you attempting that will fail if not processed in that manner?
