Greetings

I have sas enterprise guide which is connected to a remote server. however, I can access all the data within a library called ENRFIL and I can see all the varaibles within each dataset but if I wrote the code below it keeps telling me :

Libref ENRFIL is not assigned.

ok so I right clicked on the library and chose properties.

so I wrote 

libname ENERFIL '/Students Training/Engineering files/Data';


but now it start telling me that the NSSE file does not exist though can view it manually!

That "Location" is the where the SAS metadata definition of the library is stored and nothing to do with the folder location where the actual data is stored. Try this and post the complete SAS log:

proc contents data = ENERFIL.NSSE;
run;

didn't work, rather, at "proc contents data=ENERFIL.NSSE" it tells me that ENRMGMT is not assigned. is there another way I can look for the location of the data

In your first post you show


ENRFIL

 

In your second you show

 

ENERFIL - note the E.

 

Your code references the first. 


Try using the second assignment with the E and see if that works.

Thank you Reeza, for your response, I actually have two libraries with these two names, but I'm still unable to open datasets in any of them. I think the problem is that sas referring to libraries in in deferent server but I still don't know how to fix that.
