You might try this; I've used it for exactly the purpose of getting summary
stats into a tab-delimited format which Excel reads quite easily.
set in; /* Name your SAS dataset here */
file 'c:\excel.txt'; /* The output file */
put var1 '09'x var2 '09'x var3 '09'x; /* '09'x is a TAB char */
Something like that should do it for you.
