SAS7BDAT. This version was introduced in version 7 of SAS. Not sure of how many people outside of SAS every got a copy of 7 but that's when it came out.

SAS v9 uses the same format as far as I know and I have been using it for a long time (way before it was released to the community).

Anyone, please correct me if I am wrong on this history...

Simply use the SAS 8 libs in SAS 9. I'm not aware of any incompatibilities. Has someone other experiences? Cheers and happy new year! Gerhard
