when I try to open a catalog file(formats) in PC SAS,
it shows me an error:
"ERROR: File xxxxx.CATALOG was created for a different operating system".
I know the formats was created in UNIX, can I open it in Windows SAS?

If that is not compatible,how I could get information of the UNIX version formats at windows environment? or How could I create a windows version of formats base on the current UNIX version?Thanks!

Your "solution" will involve either getting 1) the code used to create the formats, 2) a data set created using the Cntlout option with proc format and tranferred in a form you can read, 3) have the source export the catalogs containing the formats with Cport (and pray) or 4) cry.
At least that's what my options were.
