Not directly an answer to your Q, but DBMS/copy has several bugfixes; at least there is a version 7.0.5, which you could request as a legal owner of the lower version.

Subject: Extracting SAS variables with DBMSCopy
I am currently using DBMSCopy v. 7.0.1 to create SAS datasets from
pipe-delimited files. I was wondering if it is possible to take a
blank SAS dataset and extract the variables and formats to create the
.dct and .prg files. For example, if someone sent me a SAS dataset of
how they wanted that particular dataset to look like, can I use
DBMSCopy to create the .dct and .prg files so I can create a dataset
to replicate what they sent? Any kind of help would be greatly
