I have to convert my sas datasets into Xpt files.
Some of the varaiblenames are greater then 8 like ABCEDFGH.
Can someone explain the way to convert those sas datasets into xpt
Thanks in advance
Well in order process the existing data with the XPORT engine you are doing to need to create a data set that has the proper V6 names. You might get it to work by renaming the existing variables but that may not be the only problem. You should probably spend some time with the SAS documentation concerting the XPORT engine and the restrictions associated with it.
The problem here is not renaming the variables.....our client has given few variable names(greater then 8 charactesr length). He is very parcticular about having only those variablenames in final xpt file....he doent want the varaibles to be renamed........any way to do this............
If you want to transport SAS datasets, containing variable names longer than 8 characters then you should check out the CPORT and CIMPORT procedures. These handle them fine.
Here is a good starting point: http://support.sas.com/documentation/cdl/en/movefile/63050/HTML/default/viewer.htm#p0p45wa0uwhgcan1e...
