Issues viewing datasets in Enterprise guide


I had a project I was working on in SQL, and decided to do the project in SAS. So I establish a DBMS connection to SAS and successfully moved the required data sets to my sas studio(server). 

When I open up these data sets in SAS studio, they open succesfully. However, when I use SAS enterprise guide and assign a libref to the location of those data sets, I tend to find my assigned libref(library) empty, even though it assigns successfully.


A screen shot of the datasets in the folder have been attached here too.


Does anyone know what the issue is? and how I can solve it?

Is your EG session connecting to the same server as Studio? May not be looking at the same path if not.


Did you create a library at that location in Studio before moving them that library? If not they may have gone into the work library and been purged when the Studio session closed.

Yes my SAS EG and studio both connect to the server. 


I didnt create a library in studio. Since I am using an academics version, my studio and server are the same. But I managed to solve the problem by copying the files into another folder on the server and assigning a library to its location. That worked.
