I am using SAS University Edition and trying to export a SAS file from work library to shared folder.
I am using PROC EXPORT to save a file :
I am getting an error:
What does "/opt/sasinside/SASConfig/Lev1/SASApp" signifies ? How can i save/export my file ?

The technical reason for this:
SAS UE runs in a virtual machine that is actually a virtual Linux computer. Therefore, you have to use UNIX-style syntax for file and path names.
A UNIX path name that does not start with a forward slash is considered to be "relative", and starts with the Current Working Directory of the issuing process. With SAS UE, that is /opt/sasinside/SASConfig/Lev1/SASApp.
UNIX path names that start with a slash are considered "absolute", and start at the root directory of the system.
To communicate with the host system (the computer on which the virtual machine is started) on a file level, SAS UE uses a "shared folder"; the internal UNIX name should be /folders/myfolders (note the leading slash), the name on the Windows side (in your case) is C:\SASUniversityEdition\myfolders.
