Has anyone figured out a way to read an Enterprise Guide project file into SAS Studio or vice versa?
The new visual designer view in SAS Studio is a great addition and would suit the needs of a good deal of our analysts without having to try and roll out new desktop applications, which is a considerable chore in out currently desktop infrastructure.
The majority of our existing work is in EG though and I don't want to have to recreate these projects manually or have to try and merge code if the two installed bases need to work together.

While you can open the same external content (ex. programs, etc.) in either, moving projects between Enterprise Guide and SAS Studio (without manually recreating) is not currently supported. We recognize the value this capability would provide and are exploring adding it in a future release.

To add a bit to CaseyS' answer, we are looking to add this to SAS Studio and I'd love to get feedback on what we're thinking. There's not a good way to do a complete conversion from an EG project all the way to a Studio process flow (.CPF file). What we can do is scrape the SAS code out of the EG project and bring that into Studio as something like a .SAS file. This is somewhat like the experimental functionality we have in Studio to bring in a stored process - when you pull a stored process into Studio, it creates a Studio task to be able to run it. So it's not really a conversion, more a way for you to still use your existing things in the Studio interface.

The ability to read the code straight from EG fies into Studio would save time and allow us to resuse our existing assets more effectively. Very much in the same way that we imported code into program nodes in EG when we migrated our processes from Base SAS.
