Access to MVS SAS library

Access to MVS SAS library

Access to MVS SAS library

I have the licence of SAS MVS finished but I´m working with SAS in PC yet.
My question is: Can I transfer the SAS library from MVS to PC and use the library with SAS PC?

Thank you

RE: Access to MVS SAS library

I had similar situation (leaving an MVS/TSO job and going to a PC SAS job) about 2 years ago.

Just cut and paste the code into txt files (or .sas files) and you should be good to go.

This is just for the programs... data is another situation.

RE: Access to MVS SAS library

You can ftp your source code (flat file) to your pc.
If sas datasets created with SASv8.2 or up, you may ftp them too.  otherwise, you need SAS/Connect to download your sas datasets with PROC DOWNLOAD.

RE: Access to MVS SAS library

Yes, but the problem is: The MVS licence (SAS 6.11) is expired and I´ve only SAS PC. It´s impossible to use SAS/Connect.

The only way is use a File-Transfer program and convert the file downloaded, but how do I the conversion?

RE: Access to MVS SAS library

Are you trying to convert data or programs???

Programs are not too tough - simply open them up from your library (Librarian?  TSO JCL?) and cut and paste them into something on your box.

If data - you should be able to FTP them around and get them to your PC.
