To add to (I hope) to what has already been said - I would run (not walk) to
my SAS rep if I were your new appointee and request an upgrade from V7 to
V8, M1. Fixes a number of bugs from V7 and M0 of V8.
There are issues with writing to catalog members in a V6 library from V7 or
V8 (you can't do it). The documentation in V8 is fairly complete in that
area. Also, there are some good papers from past SUGIs in the tech support
area of the SAS external web site. One in particular, by Beatrous & Holman
of SASI, is "Version 6 and Version 8: A Peaceful Co-Existence". Not sure if
this is on the site, but can be obtained by contacting SAS Tech Support.
