Migrating data in SAS: 32-bit to 64-bit

In Uncategorized on October 11, 2011 at 3:35 pm

Today, I was having difficulties in reading some of the datasets. At first, I was thinking that the error might be due to incompatibility between type encoding. This has happened before in some of the other datasets that I was involved in. However, it turned out to be an issue because of the native system that is in different bit.

 

Most fortunately, SAS provides PROC migrate which allows us to transport data sets between systems. While this is not a panacea to all our data set problems, it does alleviate some of the issues that we face. At the very least, the conversion process is a lot more simpler and easier to manage.
