Explains the steps for moving SAS files across operating environments. Strategies include the Cross-Environment Data Access feature of directory-based operating environments, the CPORT and CIMPORT procedures, the XPORT engine with the DATA step or COPY procedure, and the XML engine with the DATA step or the COPY procedure. to move SAS files to a new operating environment on a different computer (for example, moving HP-UX files to a RedHat Linux operating environment). to move a file and its processing to a high-performance operating environment and then return the file to the requesting operating environment. Moving and Accessing SAS Files across Operating Environments If you access Version 6 files in a Version 8 environment, you cannot use features that are specific to Version 8. Actions Required for Traditional SAS File Move Operations gives a summary of the traditional move scenarios and associated operations to be performed. The Overview of Examples of Moving SAS Files between Computers. These examples show the creation, transfer, and restoration of transport files between two computers that run under different operating environments. This table describes the basic characteristics of each example.

Cross-Environment Data Access (CEDA) This feature of SAS enables a SAS file that was created in any directory-based operating environment (for example, Solaris, Windows, HP-UX) to be processed by a SAS session that is running in another directory-based environment.

Moving and Accessing SAS® Files, Third Edition. Transferring Transport Files across a Network. You can use any of these methods to make a transport file available for access: NFS (Network File Services) to mount the file on the network for operating environment access. See the documentation for NFS and for your operating environment.

In order to successfully move a transport file between two computers and operating environments, the encodings of the source and target SAS sessions must be compatible. For example, a source SAS session that uses the Wlatin1 encoding that is associated with the Spanish Mexico locale is compatible with the target SAS session that uses Wlatin1 encoding that is associated with the Italian .
