Hi, I am using read.ssd() from foreign package to read some SAS datasets. I have 
2 types of SAS datasets, one with "sas7bdat" extension, the other with "ssd01" 
extension. I have no problem with the first dataset type, but got the following 
error message with the 2nd dataset type (with "ssd01" extension):

test<-read.ssd("C:/Documents and Settings/Desktop","test",sascmd="C:/Program 

SAS failed.  SAS program at C:\DOCUME~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\Rtmp08209e\file65b5504.sas 

The log file will be file65b5504.log in the current directory
Warning message:
In read.ssd("C:/Documents and Settings/Desktop", "test", sascmd = "C:/Program 
Files/SAS/SASFoundation/9.2/sas.exe") :
  SAS return code was 2

Attached please find the log file. Thanks for any suggestions.
