SAS Library Reference

Hello there,

 

I assigned the same SAS library reference to two data sets:

 

It worked out well for the first data as shown in the log :

%Let Qdrive=\\dcwdfap002\\rpuprojects;

Libname SG "&Qdrive.\PA\LA\forensics\LA\SAS Library\ScoreGain";

Log message:

NOTE: Libref SG was successfully assigned as follows:
Engine: V9
Physical Name: \\dcwdfap002\\rpuprojects\PA\LA\forensics\LA\SAS Library\ScoreGain

 

When reading the second data set, it gives and error

 

%Let Qdrive=\\dcwdfap002\\rpuprojects;

Libname SG "&Qdrive.\PA\LA\forensics\LA\SAS Library\Time Analysis";

 

log message:

NOTE: Library SG does not exist.

 

I am reading both data files once.

 

Does anyone know why the second one is not working?

 

Thanks and regards,

Re: SAS Library Reference

Almost...except for the final folder.

 

So can you see

 

  \\dcwdfap002\rpuprojects\PA\LA\forensics\LA\SAS Library\Time Analysis

 

In another tool, like Windows Explorer?  Also, I notice you have a double-slash in the middle of the path:

 

%Let Qdrive=\\dcwdfap002\\rpuprojects;

Re: SAS Library Reference

The most common cause of this error: the path doesn't exist (or you don't have read access to it).  Double-check the path name to be sure it's correct.

I believe the path is almost the same as above.

Thanks Chris for your time and inputs. Even though the log says "NOTE: Libref SG was successfully assigned as follows: ", the library SG does not appear in the libraries folder under SASApp. I am running the codes on Enterprise Guide 7.1. When I run other codes and want to save my sas data in the same library, it says library SG does not exist.

 

Best regards,
