I am having trouble opening an Enterprise guide data set in Enterprise Miner. I am a student and the professor posted a document for Miner that my computer only read it in Enterprise Guide. For all the other students it downloaded in Miner. I right clicked the document, enter properties, and change the location to open with Enterprise Miner. After doing that, I opened it and it opened with Miner but it simply opens the menu page, I am not actually being able to see the dataset. I need help setting this new project in miner. Thank you for your help. My Miner is 14.1.

You are probably seeing the data open up in SAS Enterprise Guide because that is the default tool to open and view SAS datasets. When when you double-click the dataset from your professor, it will automatically open in Enterprise Guide. (Note that these datasets are all SAS datasets. There is no such thing as "Enterprise Guide" dataset. Enterprise Guide is simply a tool you can use to view these SAS datasets. )
Trying to open this SAS dataset in Enterprise Miner will not work the way you are expecting. Enterprise Miner is not designed to open a dataset for viewing the same way that Enterprise Guide is, and you can't simply "open" a SAS dataset in Enterprise Miner. Enterprise Miner creates projects that utilize these SAS datasets to do data mining and analytics. The menu page you are seeing when Enterprise Miner opens allows you to create a new project or open an existing one.
To use SAS datasets in Enterprise Miner:
I hope this cleared things up a bit!
