That's like no information. Are you using SAS University Edition or Academics on Demand, or SAS installed on your comptuer?

 

Did you ever save the code at all? If not, you're likely out of luck. 

If you're using SAS UE, and you opened it back up and it didn't have your code you're likely out of luck as well. 

 

Frequently saving your work is a good lesson to learn early. Sorry it had to make you lose your work though.

Re: retrieve of codes

Could you provide some details about your problem. Explain. Not a short explanation, but an explanation of the problem with lots and lots and lots of detail so we can understand what you are talking about.

Did you exit from SAS without saving your code? 

 

If you didn't save the code, then most likely it is gone, and you will have to recreate the code.

 

You should, however, do a search, using your operating system's search feature, for all files on all disks whose name ends with .sas, and then open each one you find in SAS to see if it contains the code you are looking for.

Sas installed on my computer via my school.

Re: retrieve of codes

You can try the solutions listed here, assuming you were not using SAS Studio and a fully installed version of SAS. If it was a cloud solution that was hosted on your schools servers you're out of luck.

I suspect it may take less time to rewrite than to try to recover this work TBH.

Recoded it. I am done already.
