The cause of the problem is that you're trying to open an old 16-bit
catalog in the new 32-bit version 6.11 To access this catalog, you'll
need to convert it to 6.11 using proc c16port and proc cimport,
something like this:
libname old '.....' ;
libname new '.....' ;
proc c16port c=old.catname;
proc cimport c=new.catname;
This should suffice; further options available.
