Exploring Data with SAS visual Analytics execise 1, cannot find data source

I just started my SAS Big Data Analytics Programming course. I am on exploring DATA with SAS visual Analytics exercise 1. I followed the demo and opened the Insight Toy Company Exploration . However, the system gave me a dialog window saying it cannot find the data source. I have two options on the window: 1. remove, 2, replace by select..I suppose it is replace by select a different source so I chose that option and saw a list of files. However, after selecting the one named Insight Toy Company Exploration , I still get the same message that it cannot find the data source..I am stuck here and wasted one hour my lab time and cannot solve it...Please help..

Re: Exploring Data with SAS visual Analytics execise 1, cannot find data source

Hi:
Please look at this previous posting:
https://communities.sas.com/t5/SAS-Academy-for-Data-Science/SAS-Big-data-module-1-Virtual-lab-proble...

Every time you start the Virtual Lab, there are 2 things you have to do:
1) start the LASR servers
2) load the table(s) you are going to use.

If you don't do that, the data source cannot be found. Whether you start from a fresh image or a saved image, you ALWAYS need to perform those steps. The YouTube video link posted there shows the 2 most common error messages you can get and how to fix them.

Hope this helps,
Cynthia
