Your experience may vary. It will depend on SAS features your site has implemented. And the results of a migration are not always just related to code change - consider some subtle SAS ODS differences you may experience along the way.

For example, a SAS v6 (from) migration to v8 was not always as straightforward as v8 to v9.

Suggest you search the archives using keyword "migration".

Here is one Discussion Forum thread to consider:

Agree.

That's why I said "mostly straightforward".
If we are talking about code, you shouldn't much trouble unless you have some particular and complex implementations. I mean, v6 datastep coding is pretty much the same as v9 and the majority of procedures also.

If we're talking about SAS server architecture, then forget it. v9 brought a complete new setup, you'll probably have a lot of manual work if not to redo many things from scratch.

Give us some more info please.
