The EXPORT procedure
reads data from a SAS data set and writes it to an external data source. External
data sources can include DBMS tables, PC files, spreadsheets, and delimited
external files (which are files that contain columns of data values that are
separated by a delimiter such as a blank or a comma). For more information
about PC file formats, see SAS/ACCESS Software for PC File Formats: Reference.
Once you invoke PROC EXPORT, the procedure reads the input data set
and writes the data to the external data source. PROC EXPORT exports the data
by one of the following methods:
You control the results with options and statements that
are specific to the output data source. PROC EXPORT produces the specified
output file and writes information about the export to the SAS log. In the
log, you see the DATA step or the SAS/ACCESS code generated by PROC EXPORT.
If a translation engine is used, then no code is submitted.
