What is sas.get()?
If you are talking about read.ssd() in package "foreign", you have to 
specify the path to the sas executable. If you are on Windows (your mail 
header suggests, but you have not told it), this might begin with 
"c:/Program files/........." unless you have sas in your PATH already.
