When you run PROC MIGRATE
with validation tools, you generate Output Delivery System (ODS) reports
that validate a successful migration. The validation tools are located
on the SAS Web site at
The validation tools support a basic migration or a migration with
the SLIBREF option (which uses RLS).
The validation tools
consist of a set of macros and a template of example code. Some of
the macros run before the migration to record the expected behavior
of PROC MIGRATE. Another group of macros runs after the migration
to record the actual behavior. The final group of macros compares
expected and actual behavior.
If you use the MOVE
option with PROC MIGRATE, the validation tools can produce validation
output only for the members that were migrated. The MOVE option deletes
the source library after it has been moved to the target library.
For these reasons, the MOVE option significantly limits the validation
tools. For example code, see the validation tools topics on the SAS
Web site (the URL above).
