Hello Thomas,  your idea is a feasible idea.  We just want to make sure you understand in order for this idea to work, the column names and filter names must be identical in the new data source.  If the names are not identical or columns are not identical, problems could occur trying to keep this information.  Does this make sense?

Hi, yes of course: everything is the same. We had issues with the Naming of the data source. For example: 'Company Data Source 1' caused problems when migrating from SAS 9.2 to SAS 9.4 because we had blanks between the single words - so we changed the Data Source to 'Company_Sata_Source_1' to avoid these problems. The column names, the filters and everything else was the same since we copied the IMAP.
