I have the latest version of foreign, but it still doesn't work. I quickly tried the Hmisc package, but the same issue arose. I will delve into the Hmisc package further.

Thanks.

I hope the problem is fixed in the latest version of foreign (no version

info was given). In case it's not, you may want to look at the sasxport.get function in the Hmisc package.
