MIGRATE Procedure

Migrating a Data Set that Contains Non-English Characters

For SAS data sets that use the ASCII-OEM character set, PROC MIGRATE does not translate non-English characters. To migrate a SAS data set with ASCII-OEM characters to the current release of SAS, use the CPORT and CIMPORT procedures with the TRANTAB option. Specify the appropriate TRANTAB values for the source and target data sets. (See CPORT Procedure and CIMPORT Procedure.)
