How to change directory for SAS work Library out of C: drive

Hi Everyone,

My PC has a 128GB SSD drive (C: drive) where Windows 7 and SAS are install.

When I run SAS, all of the intermediate files in Work Library and are place in C:drive. I know that since C drive free space is all gone as SAS files are created in Work Library.

I wonder what I should do to change the Work Library to D: drive, which is 1T hard drive.

Thank you for your help.

HHC

Sorry, I found it

You'd better talk with SAS Administrator.

Did your SAS set up under UNIX envirnoment ? then you should ask Administrator to cancel the limitation of user's source and re-start SAS Server.

And another workaroud way is using :

options user=your-another-library ;

to replace the function of WORK library.

options user="E:\SASTEMP";
