Mainframe SAS 9.4 ods pdf error PHYSICAL FILE DOES NOT EXIST, VQ487.SASWCUR.TTF..

I'm trying out mainframe SAS 9.4, but I got the following error.  What am I missing?  The same code worked in SAS 9,2.  Thanks.  -- Warren

 

1          options papersize=letter nodate nonumber nobyline center;

2          options orientation=landscape ps=133 nofontembedding;

3          proc template;

4           define style styles.test;

5           parent=styles.printer;

6            style header from headersandfooters /

7             background=_undef_

8             font_face=courier

9             font_size=8.0pt;

10           style data from cell /

11            font_face=courier

12            font_size=9.0pt

13            asis=on;

14           style table from output /

15            rules=none

16            frame=void

Did you change from a stand-alone SAS install to a server based install with the upgrade? Then the paths for your filename may need to be addressed as the server will need help trying to write to your computer.

 

Or there may be another path to the file related issue. Did your FILENAME statement return any errors when defining the fileref OUTF?

No, this is not PC SAS.  I did not install it.  It is in the mainframe.

 

Thanks,

TTF files are True Type Font files.

It seems to me that while upgrading from SAS 9.2 to SAS 9.4 

either some font files were not installed or they were installed to another path.

 

Check it with your SAS administrator.
