specifies the name and location of the file to be transported.


The CPORT procedure writes SAS data sets, SAS catalogs, or SAS libraries to sequential file formats (transport files). Use PROC CPORT with the CIMPORT procedure to move files from one environment to another.

The value of the FILE= option can be a fileref defined in a FILENAME statement, a quoted Windows pathname, or an environment variable.

If you do not use the FILE= option and have not defined the reserved fileref SASCAT, a file named SASCAT.DAT is created in your working directory.

Note:   You can use the MIGRATE procedure, beginning with SAS 9.1, to migrate a SAS library from a previous release.  [cautionend]
