I'm trying to convert my SAS dataset to Stata using the export procedure.
I have a dataset called 'survey' which I can successully export to Stata.
The resulting Stata file has the proper variable label. However, the formats does not carry over to the Stata dataset.
For example, a SAS variable 'sex' should have the format 1='Male, 2='Female'. The Stata dataset value label for sex is just '1' and '2'. I would preper that I don't have to code all the values in Stata.
Below is the export code i used.
libname data 'C:\data\'; libname library 'C:\Data\Formats';
Looks like your code is correct. Have you confirmed that your SURVEY dataset has the required formats defined on the columns prior to exporting? Also that your FORMATS catalog actually contains the formats - you can use proc format with the FMTLIB option for this.
