Hi All,

I am trying to import a .sas7bdat file into R.

I tried using Hmisc package's sasxport.get() function.

temp <- sasxport.get("path\abcd.sas7bdat")

I get an error that says "Error in lookup.xport(file) : file not in SAS transfer format"

I am not familiar with SAS transfer format.

Could somebody please clarify what is it that I am missing,

Thanks for your time,
