Subject: SAS & Excel files...
For some reason, the students in one of our grad labs insist on
maintain their data files in Excel. While it is fairly trivial to
write out a flat ASCII file, with one form of column delimiter or
other, and then read it into SAS, I 'm wondering if there is some
facility in SAS (v. 6.11) for "directly" ready an Excel file (or Lotus
1-2-3, or dBase or anything else).
Any help appreciated.
