Hello all.

I asked about this last week and got some answers, but I am still having
problems. I want to take a SAS dataset on the SUN and import it into
S+4.5.

I use the following code to make the .tpt file in SAS (V 6.12):

> proc cport library=work file 'box.tpt' memtype=data;
> run;
>
> this creates a box.tpt on the Sun in the appropriate way.
>
> The problem is when I try to read this into S+. I use
> Import:Data:From File, select "SAS transport files *.tpt" and then
> select box.tpt. I get the error message:
> "Internal error message was 'File is not a SAS TRANSPORT file'."
>
Is there a particular engine S+ wants me to use to make the .tpt files?
Has anyone else had this problem?

Thanks

Jim Box
