Convert UNX SAS Files to Windows

I imagine that this is an easy question to answer, but I've been unable to find the combination of search terms that will find it in the knowledge base.  I get a lot of SAS files produced in a UNIX environment.  I work in Windows.  Whenever I access one of the UNIX files, I get a message about it, and a statement that it will take more resources, etc.  How do I convert the files to Windows so that I can be done with that?

Re: Convert UNX SAS Files to Windows

Proc cport/xport but it means duplicating your data.

Just copy the files.  For example to copy them to a new folder.

libname old 'path to unix datasets';
libname new 'path for Windows datasets';
proc copy inlib=old outlib=new noclone;
run;

Re: Convert UNX SAS Files to Windows

I pushed the wrong button. While I'm sure both solutions would have worked, the one that I used was Tom's.

Thanks to both of you.
