Orion is a libname that's usually set up for training. If you're taking a course you'll find the instructions at the beginning to create the library with the data sets. The first e-course is free and I think it has the orion library.

The SAS Programming 1 course is provided for free by SAS Institute and provides sample data that you store in the Orion library.

 

One of the first things that happen is that the course takes you through how to reference the Orion library

Hi:
As @draycut mentions, Programming 1 and Statistics 1 (and our other e-learning classes) will typically have a Course Overview and Data Setup lesson that explains how you have to run a program to make the data for Programming 1.

Orion is the name of the library. There are usually 2 tasks in the instructions, Task 1, where you issue your LIBNAME statement for your system and Task 2, where you copy the program that is INSIDE the course and then run the program. You have to do ALL the steps in Task 1 and ALL the steps in Task 2 to make the data needed for class.

I am not familiar with Toolwire. The instructions inside Programming 1 explain how to make the data using different interfaces: Base SAS For Windows; SAS Enterprise Guide; SAS University Edition; SAS OnDemand for Academics.

Assuming you have a location with write access when you use Toolwire, and you know the path name to that location, you should be able to make a LIBNAME statement and run the program successfully.
