I have a folder in my local d drive. in that folder i have various Excel, Csv workbooks and Tab files with different names.
So here i wanted to just extract the name's and type of the file and size of the file into a data set.

Look at the f-function: finfo, fopen and the dopen-function together with dread and dnum to iterate over the contents of the directory. If you can execute shell commands, use dir or ls (depending on the os) together with filename statement. There are many examples out there, i am sure you will useful ideas.

If your SAS session runs on a remote server, you most probably won't have access to your local drives from SAS code.

If the resources as seen on your desktop (eg your D:\ drive) are not somehow mounted on the server, then your SAS process can't "see" them.

Please make up your mind. Quote from your original post:
"I have a folder in my local d drive."
(emphasis by me)
Are we talking about server resources, or resources on your desktop?
Please specify in-depth information about your SAS setup, and which data on which location you want to inspect for filenames.
