Image: Binary 1B Important information about SAS files on Basic CURFs


Many of our users accessing the Basic CURFs on CD-ROM will move from a 32-bit to a 64-bit Windows Operating System and will be requiring capability to allow interoperability between the two.

In the near future, ABS will be migrating to a 64 bit operating system. When this occurs, SAS files in both 64-bit and 32-bit will be included on the CD-ROM. For all CURFs that have already been issued, the following information will be useful to convert SAS files from 32-bit to 64-bit.

Data created with 32-bit SAS is deemed foreign in 64-bit SAS. Compatibility can be overcome by migrating datasets, using PROC MIGRATE calculator.

libname data_32 'S:Workshop';
libname data_64 'S:Workshop64bit';

/*64bit folder created to save migrated data*/
 proc migrate out=data_64 in=data_32;
run;
libname _all_ clear;
libname data_64 'S:Workshop64bit';

For further details please refer to PROC MIGRATE Documentation
