If you do not have SAS available, there is also a free program provided by
SAS called the SAS System Viewer, which will export sas7bdata files to csv. 
N.b. that I've heard it can be buggy if any character variables contain
unmatched quotes.  I've also read in a previous post
of a program written by Chris Long called dsread
(http://www.oview.co.uk/dsread), which will do the trick.  I haven't used it
yet, but it sounds a lot better than fumbling through the SAS System Viewer.
