Whenever we open a table in SAS DI, we return a "no rows" window even though the physical version of the table still exists (physical is still in the server with rows). How can we view the metadata of the tables again?

 

Some of our DI jobs execute with error due to the empty metadata.

We've solved it; we found one of the macros in autoexec is causing an error, resulting to the libraries not being declared -- thus all tables in DI not appearing as well.

So, you have a physical table, and it's registered in metadata, but there are no columns defined for it?

 

Right-click on the table, select Update Metadata - this populates the column metadata for the table using what's "physically" there.
