Lauri, well, fortunately for you, for me, for other SAS-L-ers, for the whole free world, and for the denizens of Narnia too, the brainiacs at the SAS Institute have created just the tool for people to use to migrate SAS data sets; it is called: PROC MIGRATE. You can get the 411 on migrating SAS data sets at this link:
Check it out!
Lauri, best of luck in all your SAS endeavors!
I hope that this suggestion proves helpful now, and in the future!

shoot all birds, field all our men and troops... and force
migratory birds to stay where they are. - Vladimir Zhirinovsky
