I am new to SAS. I am installed SAS Studio and using it but I got a error message while using SAS libraries.
Error appears as follows:
ERROR: User does not have appropriate authorization level for library SASHELP.
please help out to utilize SAS libraries.

What were you trying to do?
Assign the library, or read a dataset from that library?

@rajeshinjamoori are you using SAS University Edition or SAS OnDemand for Academics? If so, you do NOT have write access to the SASUSER libary.
Cynthia explains the issue in a little more detail in this posting: https://communities.sas.com/t5/General-SAS-Programming/SAS-Certification-program-problem/m-p/188775#...
As a workaround, you can redirect your SASUSER library to a location where you do have write access.

Also, SASHELP is always read-only, so trying to create a dataset there will always end with this ERROR message.
