PROC MIGRATE Documentation

Beginning in SAS 9, the migration process is simplified with the MIGRATE procedure and validation tools. PROC MIGRATE not only copies or moves a library to the target installation, it also changes the members' file format to that of the most recent release of SAS, enabling you to exploit the full capabilities of the software. In addition, PROC MIGRATE provides some new functionality that the COPY, CPORT, CIMPORT, and CATALOG procedures do not.
