Hi:
The tutorial datasets are not provided. Many of the tutorial videos use data from the SASHELP library or from the documentation examples. The tutorials are intended as quick "how-to" videos for you to practice with your own data.

We provide sample data inside our e-learning classes, such as the free Programming 1 or Statistics 1.

In the SAS editor you would type:

libname <ref> "<path to physical location>";

<ref> gets replaced by an alias of your choosing, <path> is the physical network pathname to a folder which SAS can access and where datasets saved into the library physically get stored.  It should be in the training.

Hi:
The Programming 1 class is free as self-paced e-learning and can help you get started with the basics.
