Not sure I should be posting here. First time...
I am following SAS Programming 1: Essentials. I am acessing SAS that is instaled in a remote server in my university.
When following instructions( https://support.sas.com/edu/OLTRN/ECPRG193/eclibjr/setup_win.htm) to create a folder where some files will be installed I get always an error :
19 %let path=/files/pdlonet/home/SAS Practice/ecprg193;
20 libname orion "&path";
NOTE: Library ORION does not exist.
Can anyone help ?
thanks a lot!

Some of the code from the training materials assumes that you are working on a local machine without a server. Path related items therefore start on the SERVER and often do not exist.
I believe there may be a menu task that will allow the server to address a library folder on your computer. Or you may need to find out if students have work space that you can use on the server.

thanks a lot for the quick reply!
We do have a drive that we can use , on the server, to store our stuff. I used that one with the exercise but it didnt work.

The start point for the PATH variable may not be correct. It is a good idea to start all paths from the root or mount point explicitly has otherwise they will generally be treated as relative to the executing path.
