Subject: Re: SAS --> JMP/IN automatic conversion?
My experience with JMP is from some years ago, especially vs. 3.2. Which
version do you have, 4.0? JMP 3.2 could read SAS 6.12 datasets, as long as
variable labels were no longer than 32 characters (40 allowed in SAS). Else
it could read SAS portable (export) files (with variable labels up to 40
characters). With JMP 4.0 this limitation has been removed (as far as I have
understood). You could try writing a portable file from SAS (8.x) and import
that in JMP.
