use proc upload to upload a graphic template

Can anyone tell me how to use proc upload to transfer a graphic template from my local machine to a server? I'm using the following code. It didn't give me any error message, but the template was not transferred.

options comamid=TCP connectpersist connectremove=<servername> connectstatus connectwait signonwait;

signon <servername> user=<username> password=<password> notify=YES;

     rsubmit <servername>;

          libname myoutlib <path on the server>;

               proc upload inlib=<libname on my local computer> outlib=myoutlib;

                    select Templat(memtype=itemstor); /* I'm trying the transfer the template: inlib.Templat */

               run;

   endrsubmit;

signoff;

Thanks!

Re: use proc upload to upload a graphic template

Hi:

  It was my understanding that you cannot transfer item stores across platforms. You might want to verify this with Tech Support. Item Stores (where templates and the SAS registry are stored) are binary file formats and cannot be transferred from one system to another. For templates, this is why we recommend that you maintain a separate library of your .SAS programs that create the templates. Because you have to recreate the templates on a new system.
