Base Certification Question

Guys,

When I ran a sample progam from the book i got an error "Libname CLINIC is not assigned."

To prepare for Base Certification Exams do I have to download any datasets from SAS website so that I can run sample programs from the books?

Thanks,
JC

Re: Base Certification Question

The important question for you to answer is: what code did you execution and from what source was it obtained (URL, book, otherwise?).

And, if you have a defined LIBNAME in your sample code, and it refers to an existing SAS data-library, then it's likely you need to obtain the sample data.

Re: Base Certification Question

It remains unclear exactly what "Certification Book!" you reference in your post/reply. So, here's a Google advanced search argument, this topic / post - mostly to help with guidance for possible SAS.COM support site links - i

Re: Base Certification Question

Is this the certification book?

http://www.sas.com/apps/pubscat/bookdetails.jsp?catid=1&pc=62439

It says it comes with a CD-ROM containing the data. It's possible the data might also be samples that are included with SAS. To set up practice data in SAS, select Help->Learning SAS Programming from the menu. When the SAS Online Training Sample Data window appears, click OK to create sample data.

Good luck!
