I have SAS 9.3 64-bit on a Windows 7 computer, but all the other computers in my department are SAS 9.2 32-bit on a Windows XP. It will be a while before we get them updated to 9.3, but I want to use my new 64-bit computer because it runs a lot faster.
Is there a way to convert the SAS datasets output by my 64-bit computer to 32-bit so that there are no compatibility issues for my colleagues using the files I create?

Using Proc Cport/cimport is usually the most safe way to share data between environments, even it's a bit manual if you need to do it often.

You could just make the dataset. SAS should automatically adjust using the CEDA engine.
Otherwise use the OUTREP libname option so that you write the datasets using the format that they want to use to read them.
