Hello,

I need help to convert mainframe file to XLS format which should have multiple sheets. and SMTP the file to mailbox as attachment.

Why do you hope that only SAS can do this? Is it a problem if there is another way? Unless, of course, you are with the SAS Institute and you want no competition.

Hello,
The link that Kevin provided should get you a good start in generating multisheet Excel file with ODS EXCELXP.

It might also be worth taking a look at MSOFFICE2K_X tagsets. I personally prefer them over ODS EXCELXP, since they are easy to code and has more options than EXCELXP.

Use [URL] BBCode for Links

EXCELXP generates a XML output file & MSOFFICE2k_X generates a HTML file(both of them recognizable by Excel & transparent to the user), so both the techniques may generate different size files. And you can decide which one to use based on your input file and the volume that can be sent over email.

Hope it helps.

I think the 'hope' statement was more like 'I hope I can do it using just SAS.'
