Hey guys,


I was having the same problem. The libname code would create an empty library with nothing in it. The problem was that the path was incorrect. The correct code was:


libname np xlsx "/folders/myfolders/coursefiles/EPG1V2/data/np_info.xlsx";

I was accidentally setting the path to "/folder/.." when it should have been folders. Thanks to whoever mentioned double checking your path name by right clicking the file and selecting properties. Hope this helps someone else out there.

Hi All,

Update on this: turned out that the course files for SAS EG did not contain any data at all. I downloaded the one for SAS studio, and this one does have the Excel files I was looking for. Thanks for your help, I thought I was going mad...

Hi everyone, this is an update in 2023, as I came across this post by Googling the same problem. I am using SAS OnDemand for Academics and had a "coursefiles" folder that was separate from the "pg1v2setup_oda" folder, both of which I downloaded when installing SAS EPG1V2.


I was able to find the "Storm_Summary" worksheet located in the "storm.xlsx" workbook by going to "coursefiles > EPG1V2 > data folder > storm.xlsx"
