SAS Formats under Windows

Accessing User-Written Formats from Earlier Releases to SAS 9.2

Version 6.12, 7, and 8 formats (catalogs) are readable in SAS 9 on 32-bit SAS for Windows. If you are on 64-bit SAS for Windows, you must use PROC CPORT and CIMPORT to convert. For more information on PROC CPORT and CIMPORT see Base SAS Procedures Guide.

If you are on 32-bit SAS for Windows, and you want to migrate a SAS library, PROC MIGRATE is the recommended method.

Note:   User-defined formats are stored as catalog entries.  [cautionend]
