Hey Jamie,

As you mentioned, I get all my data into a single column...

The SAS export creates two files, xxx.txt which has your data and xxx.sas which is the data step to read the data. The .txt file does not have delimiters (i.e. no spaces or commas separate the data). So it may look like a single column with everything mashed together. What do you get when you run the data step?
