Using Remote Host SAS Files in SAS 9.4

In SAS 9.4, you can directly access SAS 9.4 data sets that were created on a remote host under any previous version of SAS. For example, you might have a Version 5 SAS data set under VSE or a Version 8 data set under UNIX. Alternatively, you can create a transport data set and transport your file from the host to Windows.
A complete explanation of using remote host SAS files in SAS 9.4 can be found in Moving and Accessing SAS Files. For cross-release compatibility, see the Migration focus area at
