I am attemping to read a sas table and write the output to a .csv file on windows server. Seems pretty easy... but I can't get it to work. I am getting error 'insufficient priveleges', however, I looks like the statement has put a sasbase library in fron of the windows location to put my exported file. I don't understand why it is looking at sasbase when I am directing it in the export opens to the windows path. Of course, this is needed within an hour! I have never done an export like this. Can anyone offer any suggestionsj
Here is my code:
/* Development */
CREATE TABLE WORK.Sales_Extract AS
PROC EXPORT DATA=WORK.Sales_Extract
ERROR: Insufficient authorization to access /sasbase/SAS9.2/config/Lev1/SASApp/c:\Data\Extracts\SalesExtract.csv.

Large economy size hint: Compare the place you tried to write and the location referenced in the error message. The combination of / and \ tells me that you are likely running with SAS running on a Unix server and you don't have permissions to write to the disks on the server.
You may need to talk to your SAS admin about how to direct output back to your PC instead of to locations on the server.
