Using proc cport to create .xpt file

The following code creates a .xpt file but the file is not populated - it has no content other than a date and time stamp. There are no errors or warnings in the log - it states that there were 1147 observations as expected. Please can anyone explain why the data in _source are not carried across into the .xpt file?


proc cport data=_source file='Y:\F_Science\\Outputs\pc.xpt';

Re: Using proc cport to create .xpt file

You are missing a select:


Anyways, I wouldn't go that route with cport.  Use a slightly different method:

filename tmp xport "y:/pc.xpt";

proc copy in=_source out=tmp;

filename tmp clear;
