This paper describes an approach for using SAS to create zip files and e-mail them as attachments to recipients from a contact list. The advantage of this approach is that it minimizes the potential for human error from manually zipping and e-mailing files, makes documentation simple, and reduces the labor burden. This approach was accomplished using Base SAS Version 9.1 tools, free WinZip software, and an SMTP server.
