It may be that you will not be able to get CPORT/CIMPORT to work
with versions 6.12 and 6.09. Try PROC COPY with the XPORT
engine to create an export dataset on your 6.12 platform,
and PROC COPY with the XPORT engine on the export dataset
on your 6.09 platform to inport it.
Also, if you transfer it electronically, make sure you
are doing a binary transfer.
