Subject: .sas7bdat file type?
Sorry if this is obvious / has been covered before, but it is Friday p.m.
and I am jet-lagged and I cannot see what I am doing wrong/different.
I am running v8.2 and I am trying to copy datasets from one directory, where
they are in V6.03, to
another where they will be in V8. So I do:
libname oldlib v604 "&directory1";
libname newlib "&directory2";
... and what I get is a file with extension .sas7bdat.
I can find no reference to .sas7bdat in SAS help.
I have been using V8 for a few weeks now, and I have always
seen .SD7 as the file extension. What is the difference? What I have I
done to create this new version? I have not changed any system options.
Is this something that changed between v8.0 and v8.2 (we just did that
upgrade v. recently, having gone from v6.12 to v8.0 earlier in the summer)?
And does this mean that all my .sd7 files are now as out of date as the .sd2
and .ssd ones?
