I am trying to access my local folders through SAS EG, which is installed on a remote server on AWS.
When trying to run the libname statement, the error shows " Library doesn't exist".
I have researched a lot online, and have nailed the problem down to the fact that since my SAS is on a server, I'll somehow have to make my local drives accessible at the server.
Can anyone please guide me on how to do that?

Several ways to do it, all of which require the cooperation of the server admin.
a) have a netwrok share defined on the SAS server, and mount it on your client. Then store your "local" files there
b) have a common network share mounted on the server and on your client
c) define a share on your local PC and have the server mount it
I don't know which file sharing methods are possible with AWS servers. The easiest method to share files might be to transfer them with SFTP.
