creating library in SAS University Edition - Help

Hi,

I'm trying to create a library in SAS University Edition but i am getting message as below:

1 OPTIONS NONOTES NOSTIMER NOSOURCE NOSYNTAXCHECK;

42 ;

43 libname perm '/folders/Myfolder';

NOTE: Library PERM does not exist.

44 ;

45 OPTIONS NONOTES NOSTIMER NOSOURCE NOSYNTAXCHECK;

55 ;

I can Physicially see the folder has been created but it has no content inside.

Help would be appreciated!

It's case sensitive.

library perm '/folders/myfolder/';

43 libname perm '/folders/myfolder';

NOTE: Library PERM does not exist.

Did you create Shared Drive in VM?

See the SAS UE Help Centre for instructions on how to set up Shared Drive

SAS University Edition Help Center

Also, it should be myfolders with the S at the end. SAS is expecting exactly that.

libname mydata '/folders/myfolders/';

Hi:

  Search for previous forum postings. I believe you are instructed to call the shared folder "myfolders" -- that is the directory that SAS University Edition is looking for. You should try this:

libname perm "/folders/myfolders';

  Here's one posting that may help https://communities.sas.com/message/218581#218581
