What is a SAS CPORT file? How do I use it?

The CIMPORT procedure imports a CPORT transport file that was created (exported) by the CPORT procedure. PROC CIMPORT will extract SAS datasets and catalogs from the .CPT file. ICPSR does not currently distribute SAS libraries in .CPT files.

Installations of SAS 9.2 on Windows operating systems supports the opening of .STC files from either Windows Explorer or My Computer. Other versions of either SAS or another OS will require the submission of edited versions of the following statements to the SAS processor. Libraries other than the WORK library can be specified if they are already defined.

 proc cport
 file = '<drive:><\PATH>dannnnn-nnnn.stc'
 library = WORK
run ;
