Subject: Please Help with reading SAS into spreadsheet or dbase
I am a newbies to this group. Please forgive my ignorant
1. Can read a data file ( *.dat ), probably a SAS one
into a spreadsheet, or TSP or any other statistical sofware
to prepare for processing it ?
I tried with MS-Excel, but the file is too large, and in
the near future, it would be many times larger. At present,
it is about > 13MB, and I have tens of them waiting for me.
2. The file contains raw data only, with the names of the
variables in another file *.dct, with column numbers to
begin with for each variables.
Can I read the variables one at a time, or in batch mode ?
Any help, hints, or advices are gratefully appreciated.
BTW, how much is a PC SAS for a PC DOS / Win95 single-user ?
And where can I buy it ?
Once more thank you very much.
