And if you have trouble with read.export(), then another option is to use SAS to export the data to a text file, then load it into R using R's read.table() function.
I would suggest that the SAS export be to a tab-delimited file, with column headers, and no quotes around text fields, but there are other options.
Pay careful attention to the stringsAsFactors argument of read.table, and I would suggest setting it to FALSE at first, at least until you learn enough about factors in R to know when to use them, and when not.
