How to create a QVD file from a SAS dataset


I would like to know how to create a QVD file directly from a SAS dataset (SAS7BDAT file).

I know that I can do this:

1. Save the SAS data into e.g. an Excel file

2. Using the script to load the Excel file and then write:

     store Testdata into E:\path\name.qvd;

And then I can open a new Qlikview application and write:

LOAD var1,




to use the newly created QVD file.

But how do I avoid the step with the Excel file - and instead create the QVD file directly from the SAS dataset?

Kind regards
