Subject:   Re: problem downloading SAS dataset to PC

See if you are licensed to use SAS/CONNECT. We have been using it for about a year now, to download about 4 GB/day from MVS to a LAN. It is great. It is simple. It is one step (PROC DOWNLOAD) vs. the many steps needed the old fashioned way. ie. 1) Create binary transport file 2) FTP 3) Convertion back to SAS.
