Libraries not present everytime i open SAS university Edition

Hi Experts,

 

I am using SAS University Edition. Every time i open SAS i do not see the the libraries i created before i see the below libraries.

Everytime i need to execute the below code so that i see my Libraries

libname Staging '/folders/myfolders/Staging';

After executing i can see my tables intact in the library.

 

But why does library goes off everytime. Does the same happen with Enterprise edition of SAS ?

 

Thanks,

Shadab.

Re: Libraries not present everytime i open SAS university Edition

A library assigned with a libname statement is only active for the duration of the session.

A google search for "permanent library in sas university edition" will get you lots of information how to automatically assign a library at the start of a new UE session.

In an enterprise environment, libraries are defined either in metadata, or by putting the libname statements into autoexec_usermods.sas files.

If you created it using the new library task (under libraries) you can click on an option that will add the libname to your autoexec file. Of course, you could do that manually as well. e.g.:
