Why there is error: WORK.WINLIB .data does not exist?

Dear ALL,

 

Just want to figure out why I use below code and there always come out an error:

ERROR: File WORK.WINLIB.DATA does not exist.

 

WIth below code:

PROC DATASETS lib=data_a;

I am using the UNIX SAS 9.4.

Are there any views in the library? That may reference the named dataset?
