    I'm trying to read SAS-data on VAX/VMS to Windows R using
    foreign pakage read.xport and experience some problems.

    Following lines are used in SAS to create XPORT file

     LIBNAME a ''xxx;
     LIBNAME b XPORT '';

     PROC COPY IN=a OUT=b;


   and I succeed in getting file that looks like correct xport
   when typing in R following lines


  I get message

 Error in lookup.xport(file) : SAS transfer file has incorrect library

 Does anyone has advice ? Is the problem in VAX/VMS SAS XPORT file ?
