ERROR: Floating Point Overflow with Greplay - sas 9.4 on PC

After transporting a template catalog using proc cport on 32 bit (sas9.3) and proc cimport on 64 bit (sas9.4), I now get a floating point error when using an imported template on the 64 bit machine. There were no errors noted during the migration.

Does anyone have a solution?

Thanks,

Bill

In looking at the translated template specs, I've found the translation created some odd values. Please see below.

How do avoid the odd value generation?

Thank you,

Bill

Looks similar to this much older problem:

18720 - CIMPORT may generate floating point overflow errors importing amainframe file on the PC

Do you have SAS/CONNECT available as a workaround?
