Bad move, IME. Will work, of course, but the practice of matching V6
and v7+ datasets in the same directory usually ends in tears :-}
Personally I'd rename the old directory and copy them to a new one if
I wanted to preserve the location, or simply leave them as V6. There
are currently no plans, to my knowledge, to drop support of the V6
Or will this go once one migrates from 32 to 64-bit SAS?
