Try converting the xlsx file to a csv or txt file using the SW that
originally created the file. May have to change the GUESSROWS to bring
in the data in the correct format.

how to tell data type and width of columns of excel file via DDE when import to SAS?
Dear SAS-L, I am trying to import excel file (one workbook with multipul worksheets) to SAS via DDE. I would like to know the type of every column of excel file(e.g. character,numeric, date and datetime) so I can define them in my SAS dataset. It seems that get.cell(7) function can do a little. But I am not quite sure especially when one column only contains numbers but get.cell(7) return 'general' (I take it as characters type). Could someone give me any advice? Thanks!

SAS 9.3
I have used the code below to import csv files on SAS 9.1 without any issues. Recently installed SAS 9.3 and tried using the same code to import but unfortunately it is not importing all columns (log looks ok, no errors). I tried it with few different csv files. It imported 15 out of 20 columns on one and another it imported 21 out of 22 columns. Not sure why it is failing. Same files are importing ok using the same code on SAS 9.1. %let infile_lookup = C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\SAS\Test; %macro inportd (csvname=, dsetout=); Proc import out=&dsetout ...

running a sas file within a sas file

Import .xlsx files
Is Import capable of reading Excel files stored in the new MSXML file format (.xslx)? A quick trial shows that it is not, but maybe I am not doing something right. I am aware that I could write a function to dig into the .xslx as a zip archive, retrieve the .xml files, and try to extract the cell values, but I am lazy and hoping somebody else did that for me already. dr DanW wrote: > Is Import capable of reading Excel files stored in the new MSXML file > format (.xslx)?

importing multiple csv files at one, and creating a new column taking characters from the csv file name
Hi; I am trying import a bunch of datasets, with the same format and extension .csv. They are saved in the same folder, and all named the same way, for instance: Week_JULY21_3456. So I want to import them all, append them, and create a new column id that corresponds to the last 4 characters of each file name. The columns that each csv file has is Obs Datetime x y z where obs is a number with no decimals, datetime is in datetime format, and x, y,z are number with decimals. Besides those column, there will be a new column ID, which will be the 4 last numbers of the csv f...

Re: running a sas file within a sas file
Like Joep wrote: that seems to be the right thing for the macro facility. With %include you are very static. With the macro facility that could be very dynamic. The simplest thing is: you could provide the statements you want to insert as parameter: %macro doit(stmt1=,stmt2=); ..... &stmt1 ..... &stmt2 ..... %mend; %doit(stmt1=%str(y=sqrt(y);), stmt2=%str(if y<2 then y=2;) ); with many other things you can do, e.g. conditional creating of statements, naming variables by parameters, create multiple statements with macro loops and much more. On the other hand: if you wan...

Importing .xlsx files in parallels
Hi, I am operating Matlab 7.11.0 windows version through parallels on my Mac. I am working on a data set that automatically outputs a separate .xlsx file for each trial, and each file has a set format, which includes several lines of header. I dont specifically need any of this header data, but I do want to be able to systematically import each file and take out the data I need. The problem is that I have Microsoft Office for mac, and so it seems that matlab wont let me import .xlsx files, nor will it let me import .xls files with and character data in it. Is there any way to do this witho...
