Calcite | Level 5

I can't seem to figure out why my program isn't working? I am new to this and was following a lecture but I don't know what I did wrong.

So far, I had uploaded the sas7bdat file to my content folder and I think that may be where I messed up.


The program I have is:

libname CLEAN_D "/home/u63338364/My_Content";
options nocenter;

proc sort data=clean_d.FINC651FundData
by name;

I then get the error. Again, I am pretty new to this so any assistance would be greatly appreciated.


Here is a screen shot:

It looks like your LIBNAME statement is missing a folder. The files that you show pictures of are in the FINC651 folder inside MyContent.


Also, are you sure that your version of studio isn't going to have issues with mixed case names?

The picture you showed there is a file named finc651funddatat.sas7bdat in a folder named FINC651.

But your libref CLEAN_D is pointing to a folder named My_Content. 

From the error message there is no file named finc651funddata.sas7bat in the My_Content folder.

We cannot tell from your picture whether or not you copied the dataset into that directory also since it might be below the folder FINC651 and so scrolled off the bottom of the screen.

Such a simple error I made not having the correct folder!
