The file extension, '.ssd01' is typically used for a standard Unix SAS
dataset. the R function, lookup.xport(), is for examining SAS XPORT
files. So, you are using the wrong approach to read the file.
You will need to get an XPORT format file, or have SAS available, or get
some 3rd party software that will read SAS datasets.
