I'm using SAS EG(SAS9.3) in a UNIX server, Try to use 'FILENAME' to read a text file from a external network driver. How to right the path? Please give an example. Thanks!!

Well, you gave an example yourself.

I'll take it that this does not work?

Verify that the search path is correct, and you have the necessary rights to access it.

If you are not authorized to login to the server directly (telnet, Putty etc), take help from someone who can.

If your SAS-admin haven't restricted it, you could be able to navigate to the file manually in EG.
