SAS Data set Compatibility issue

Is there an easy fix to make the data sets created by SAS 9.4   compatible(readable) to SAS 9.1?

Any help would be highly appreciated.

Thanks!

Datasets should be compatible with any version of 9.x.  The only time I have come across any problems is when datasets are created on another operating system, then you might consider the use of proc cimport/cport.

Not sure if it could work.

Check proc cport  and proc immigrate

proc copy noclone ;

What's you r issue? Did you receive any errors, or do you get unexpected results?

Consider upgrading SAS version in target environment, 9.1 is quite old, and not fully supported by SAS (for instance, 9.1.3 is not supported on Win 7 or higher). Upgrading is included in your license.
