SAS Guide 4.3 versus MS Office - Excel - SAS

question:
Because when you open SAS Enterprise Guide 4.3> Servers> SASApp folders appear:
. Libraries
. Files

and to open the Microsoft Office> Excel> SAS> SAS Data> Servers> SASApp appear
folders:
. MAPS
. SASHELP
. SASUSER
. STP Samples
. WORK

questions:
1 - because the folders that appear in the SAS 4.3 and MS Office Excel are different?
2 - is to match the folders open in Excel with those opened in SAS 4.3?

Sincerely,

A novice in Sas

Under Libraries in your first one does it match what you see in Excel?

Flavio,

Perhaps difficult to explain as you are probably commonly used to see one computer / one environment your Windows desktop.

With Eguide (and AMO) you get access to three additional environments.

The difference between AMO and Eguide should be minimal when using the same credentials/startup.

1/ Libraries.

  That are all type of tables. If you have used the old DMS approach you will miss the SAS-catalogs.
  What is delivered off this depends on you (host/dbms) authorized access to these tables.

  SASUSER is normally missing (hidden . read-only)  with Eguide.

  The differences AMO/Eguide could be indicating you have used a different key or startup code

2/ Files.

  This is very similar to the Windows explorer but is running at the server side.   

  What is delivered off this depends on you (server side) authorized access and the home - starting point (MyDocuments) on the server.

  Be amazed you can drag and drap files from windows explorer to this part in Eguide. A not very visible with menus upload feature.

3/ SAS metadatafolders

  This an other dedicated area with a similar lay-out of folders/maps. You could save your EG projects there (save as select server) in the same way as with windows-desktop.

Finding a file/librarie in this with a helpfull naming convention could help to see what is happening (use properties if available)
