1. DBMS/COPY Version 7 reads and writes SAS Vesion 8 files from Windows and Unix platforms. To go between windows and unix, there is no need to use transport files.

2. DBMS/COPY reads and writes Xport transport files.

3. DBMS/COPY reads and writes Version 6 CPORT transport files.

4. DBMS/COPY does not yet read or write Version 8 cport transport files. We have yet to determine this file format. I will keep you informed.
