I am using SAS EG and running code on remote sas server.
I don't have sas localy installed.
when ever i use libname statement, it takes paths on from server.
If i want to create a local library (On my client m/c) how can i make it?
i have tried
What kind of server? I think that, for you to use a local directory as a library, the SAS server has to be able to connect back to your PC as a network share.
If your SAS server is a Windows box, this may work for an XP EG client:
Go to "my computer"
Select the drive you want to share
Select file --> sharing and security
Share the drive with the network.
The share name would be \\$\
This functionality is often turned off by IT support groups, so you may need them to help you. There should be equivalent functionality for Windows host/Vista client. I'm not sure how to go about it with other SAS server hosts.
I am able to access "\\WNTPC06\C$\AVI\LIB" through browser.
this is the log for my code.
12 libname templib "\\WNTPC06\C$\AVI\LIB";
NOTE: Library TEMPLIB does not exist.
13 data templib.abc;
14 set sashelp.flags;
ERROR: An I/O error has occurred on file TEMPLIB.ABC.DATA.
NOTE: The SAS System stopped processing this step because of errors.
NOTE: DATA statement used (Total process time):
real time 0.00 seconds
cpu time 0.00 seconds
is there some other way?
My server is SAS win 2003 sever and i have XP box.
On the remote server, are you connecting as you, using your Windows account? Or is it using a machine-level account (like sasdemo)? To access the resource from your remote SAS session, the process must be running as a user that has authority to get to that path.
