Subject:   moving files with sas
Content-Type:   text/plain; charset=us-ascii

I'm trying to figure out how to move files using SAS.

I have it working with the x command such as x copy c:\dir\output.pdf t:\otherdir\reports\* ;

but some of the files have long file names with spaces in them such as x copy c:\dir\reports\much longer report.pdf t:\otherdir\reports\* ;

The problem is that I may have two files called

much longer report.pdf and much longer new report.pdf

with only a slightly different name that should be moved to different locations.

The spaces in the file names are stumping me.

How can I accomplish this?
