Thanks Jamie:

I have the same problems exporting to SPSS. These recommendations
apply also to an SPSS exporting?

Regards,

> But you get 2 files, right? The one ending in .sas has the commands (data step in SAS terminology) to read the .txt file. You don't get a SAS data file until you run the data step in the .sas file. You need the data step to tell SAS which fields are in which columns. If that isn't working for you, just keep doing the export to Excel.

>> 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?
