Default opening .sas7bdat without SAS?

is there any way to open a .sas7bdat file without SAS? our SAS software is expired, and we've been trying to get an update but it hasn't come in the mail yet. i need to work with the data in SQL server, but i don't think our SQL server import/export wizard can read the .sas7bdat file. any help would be appreciated!

A few years ago I used this to view and convert SAS data to text files.

thanks! that's awesome. i think my file is actually too big to bring into text using that software, but it's great to have just for viewing!

Check out the R package 'sas7bdat': It can bring sas7bdat data files directly into R without a text intermediary.

get sas viewer. or if you r admin, simply change your system time backward to make sas still valid to use, or use a 3rd party software called "runas" to make sas run as in a specific time or date.
