I have model attributes stored as an itemstore that I call using proc plm command. Recently my company migrated to cloud, and the itemstore that was created in the old environment gives me an error in the new environment: "ERROR: File <..>.ITEMSTOR was created for a different operating system." .

I found some workaround information for sas datasets here: https://communities.sas.com/t5/General-SAS-Programming/Data-file-is-in-a-format-that-is-native-to-an....

 

However, the workaround doesn't work for itemstor files.

Any ideas how to fix this?

Your best bet is to rerun the code that generated the item store on the new system.

 

If you have people using the old and the new operating system (typical cause of binary file incompatibility) that would require writing the new version of the store to a different location to avoid replacing the version others need.

Only data sets can easily be moved from platform to platform. other SAS objects are not as flexible, You must recreate the itemstore on the new system
