Nick, According to the following SASnote you're out of luck, Version 6 views can't be created in Version 8.


>>> Nick <nick_s_downie@HOTMAIL.COM> 12/22/03 08:59AM >>> Hi all,

Simple problem but nothing to help me in the manuals - I'm working under V8 conditions but want to create a V6 view from V6 datasets - which you'd think would be easy - but i cannot seem to find the option to make this work..

using SQL this happens...

100 101 proc sql; 102 create view sasdata.demo as 103 select * 104 from site1.demo 105 outer union corresponding 106 select * 107 from site2.demo 108 ; ERROR: PROC SQL will not store a post-V6 view into a V6 library. 109 quit; NOTE: The SAS System stopped processing this step because of errors. NOTE: PROCEDURE SQL used: real time 0.01 seconds cpu time 0.01 seconds


and in datastep...

111 data sasdata.demo / view = sasdata.demo; 112 set site1.demo site2.demo; 113 run;

ERROR: The library SASDATA is not compatible with the current version of DATA step views. NOTE: View not saved due to errors. NOTE: The SAS System stopped processing this step because of errors. NOTE: DATA statement used: real time 0.04 seconds cpu time 0.02 seconds

like i say - site1, site2 and sasdata are all v6 libname - can anyone help?

thanks in advance.
