There are atleast two ways to export a SAS dataset to Microsoft Excel.
PROC EXPORT DATA=datasetname
The program (say atlantis) that includes this, should be submitted with the -noterminal option to i.e.:
sas atlantis -noterminal
ODS html FILE='/usr2/users/student/mkaushik/AIIMS/becker/try2.xls';
PROC PRINT DATA =&dataset NOOBS;
ODS html CLOSE;
Use it when a few observations need to be extracted and sent it for review, additional data entry, data confirmation.
