It sounds as if Excel is not opening. Do you actually see an Excel window
appear? Also, what is your operating system.

Please respond to
I have been submitting the following:
options noxwait noxsync symbolgen mtrace mlogic mprint msglevel=i;
so that I can submit commands to Excel from within SAS as in the following:
filename cmds dde 'EXCEL|SYSTEM';
x = sleep(10);
The result is the following error:
ERROR: Physical file does not exist, EXCEL|SYSTEM.
NOTE: The SAS System stopped processing this step because of errors.
NOTE: DATA statement used:
real time 0.00 seconds
cpu time 0.00 seconds
I have checked, and the 'Ignore other applications' box in Excel is not
checked. Any other ideas on what the problem might be?
