I have converted the SPSS dataset into SAS dataset. However, the variable and value labels developed in SPSS could not be read in SAS. Please advise me how to maintain the conversion labels. Thank you.
Recommend you search the SAS support website http://support.sas.com -- there are DOC references on the topic with useful information on your query/post. In particular, the SAS system/architecture has "SAS variable labels" but SAS does not have a concept for "value labels", as I understand from reading support reference material found with a search.
Suggested Google advanced search argument, this topic / post:
I recently found for me that if I export the SPSS data to SAS, from SPSS then I lose my labels and formats. In my export there's also an option to save the formats to a file. This is converting a .sav file to .sas7bdat
If I read the SPSS .sav file from SAS then it reads the formats/labels.
It has been awhile since I used SPSS but the option to export to SAS had a check box to export the formats and labels. This generated separate SAS code files with PROC FORMAT and LABEL statement syntax.
If you didn't check the box no joy for labels or fromats.
