particular sas dataset not shown in the Explorer Contents while other datasets appear

Particular sas dataset not shown in the Explorer Contents while other datasets appear with no problem. I just downloaded the SAS data from the website and I wonder if you guys had occured with the same problem too? Screenshot is the properties of the data not shown under Explorer Contents in my SAS 9.4.

 

Thanks in advance. I appreciate your time.

The first thing that strikes me is that hyphens are not valid in SAS data set names so a name like ctcodes-drugs can't have been created by SAS. Have you renamed the file outside SAS because that would explain why it's not being shown in the Explorer window?

Solved the problem. Dataset popped up once it's renamed without a hyphen. Good catch!
