I am trying to learn on SAS Enterprise while going through programming I. It seems like its missing some instructions but I could just be missing something.

 

For example - in lesson 2 there is a portion wanting you to make a library based off an excel file. However it doesn't tell you where this excel file is for enterprise? The zip file downloaded for enterprise doesn't have any excel files in it.

 

Any insight is appreciated.

 

Thanks!

Hi: I believe that there is a place in the instructions for Enterprise Guide that explains you need to use the "helper variable" &PATH. I'm not sure exactly what lesson you're in, but I've highlighted two examples from Lesson 2 activities of this reference to &PATH in the screen shot below:

use_path_EG.png

 

Assuming you created the AUTOEXEC process flow, as we instructed in the setup file, your helper variable &PATH should hold the location of your WORK folder. We have you use &PATH because the physical location of your WORK folder is typically very, very long and typing it is prone to errors. It is easier in EG if we make &PATH for you every time the AUTOEXEC runs. This is why most activities that need a path instruct the EG students to use the &PATH reference.

 

Hope this helps,

Cynthia

I see it says to look at the "extended learning page" but I cannot find this page

Hi: Typically Programming 1 students who are using the free e-learning class do not have access to the Extended Learning material for Programming 1. However, the instructions for every possible method of using SAS are inside the Programming 1 class in the Course Overview and Data Setup section of the class. If you have a copy of SAS and Enterprise Guide installed on your local machine, then instead of following the EG instructions, you could also choose to follow the SAS for Windows instructions.

Also make sure the data was set up correctly. You can see a video for Enterprise Guide here: https://communities.sas.com/t5/SAS-Communities-Library/How-to-access-data-for-SAS-Programming-1-cour...

 

If you have the log and syntax error of what you are trying to do we can help a bit more. 

 

Keep us posted.

Okay thank you! Do you also happen to know if there is a training that is solely directed towards SAS Windowing Environment?

You can use the Windowing Environment to complete this course if you choose.  There are instructions in the data setup section specifically for the Windowing Environment.  You likely do not have access to the extended learning page, so I've attached the activity you can complete to navigate the Windowing Environment to write and submit code.  Hope that helps!
