Content-Type: text/plain; charset="US-ASCII"
Here is one method: (presuming v8+)
* dump PC format catalog to dataset on PC -- run this on PC ;
proc format cntlout=rawfmts;
* manually copy rawfmts.sas7bdat from PC to unix ;
* rebuild format catalog on unix -- run this on unix ;
proc format cntlin=rawfmts;
Hope this is helpful.

Subject: A CONVERTION QUESTION FOR FORMAT CATALOG FROM PC TO UNIX
I have a few formats Catalog written for PC SAS. But I cannot use them
for UNIX SAS. It gives me an error " FILE XXXX.Catalog was created for a
different operating system".
Will anyone be kind enough to help me converting this PC Format catalog
to Unix format Catalog?
Also I have one more question. How do I open a Format catalog to see the
contents? As far as I remember I need a few lines of codes. Can you
please help me out with this too?
Thanks in advance.
