Sorry, you will need to be clearer with you question.  Do you mean that you have a file, within a library area, which, when you try to open it within VA, is not opening and you get warnings or errors?  If so post the log.  Check your file is a SAS dataset .sas7bdat.  Check it is actually located in the right area.

I think you would be best served then by going through the SAS Training on using University Edition:

There should be a File button top left, with Open and then you can navigate to your file.

Are the .SAS files program code?

How are you attempting to open them? If you try to treat them as datasets but they are program code then it won't work as .SAS are usually text files.
