Moving and Accessing SAS Files across Operating Environments, Version 8

Follow easy instructions for moving SAS files between operating environments that run SAS versions 6.07 through 8. The move process involves the creation of a transport file on the local host and its transfer to the target host where the transport file is imported in native format. The type of move operation performed depends on the host type, the SAS release that runs at each host, and the SAS member to be moved. As an alternative, SAS/CONNECT is presented as a strategy for moving files. In addition, SAS/SHARE and features of CEDA (Cross Environment Data Access) are described as methods for accessing data in a cross-release environment. This book is intended for operating system administrators, network administrators, applications developers, and experienced SAS users.
