Ed, Are all your SAS data sets in a single library, or in only a few libraries? Or could they easily be combined into one library? If so, and if you have quite a few data sets, it might be easier to export the entire library (using PROC CPORT), FTP the single transport file to the other server, and import it there. Try something similar to the following on HartHanks.

LIBNAME library "..." ; FILENAME source "..." ; FILENAME target FTP "..." RECFM= F LRECL= 80 BLOCKSIZE= 8000 RCMD= "SITE BLOCKSIZE=8000 RECFM=FB LRECL=80" HOST= "DataWarehouse" USER= "..." PROMPT /* You can hard-code PASS= ... if you wish. */ ; PROC CPORT LIBRARY= library FILE= source ; RUN ; DATA _NULL_ ; INFILE source ; FILE target ; INPUT ; PUT _INFILE_ ; RUN ;

Then, on DataWarehouse, you will need to import the library.

LIBNAME library "..." ; FILENAME xptfile "..." ; PROC CIMPORT LIBRARY= library INFILE= xptfile ; RUN ;

I have no SAS experience on a SUN, so you will undoubtedly need to carefully edit the FILENAME TARGET ... statement. The key is to make sure the transfer is in binary mode. When transporting to an MVS machine from a Windows environment, the RCMD= statement insures binary transfer; you will need to research that for your SUN system.

Hope this helps a little, Ed

I was hoping for a more effecient method of transfering SAS Data Sets from one SUN server to another, ie (from HartHanks to DataWarehouse) without having to FTP one file at a time.

Does anyone have any generic code for this?
