files not recognized from my folders

I have been working quite well and all of a sudden, whatever files I want to use - shows error in log - not found.

I tried to give libname statement, still no success.

Please suggest.

Thanks.

1. Please show a screenshot of your myfolders in the Server Files and Folders pane and that the files are located there. 

2. Show your code and log with the errors. 

 

If you restarted your VM and did not select 'enable at startup' or something similar when you created the shared folder, it would not have been reassigned. If this is the case, shut down your VM, re-add the shared folder and select Persist/Enable at Start-up, restart your VM and try again.

Re: files not recognized from my folders

I am completely new to sas and did not know how to proceed.

Since I am a full time employee, I got busy with other deadlines and could not reply immediately.

The problem of file recognition still persists and can you please help.

The error message says - not a valid file name although I have been working with earlier

Thanks in advance

@kavithal

If you don't post error logs and messages and/or a screenshot which shows the error then we've got nothing to work with and can't even point you into the right direction.

Thanks, Patrick.

You are right. I missed to attach that earlier.

But, I was trying out different methods and finally found there was problem in my path and just got it right.

Many thanks.
