Hello, I'm trying to read a data set, I've looked at similar threads but exhausted all of them and the problem persists. I'm using SAS university (virtual machine), below are the Server files/folders, the code I'm trying to run, and the log with the error.

It worked, thanks. It's kind of annoying that the path changes when using SAS on a windows pc as opposed to the virtual machine. When on the pc, I didn't have to include the last folder.

The paths don't change in that way.  The PREFIX changes not any SUFFIX.  If the file is actually in the a sub-folder named wrk then you need to include wrk as the last sub-directory in the path in both the virtual machine and the host machine.
