Libraries not appearing in the tree explorer despite being assigned EG7.1

I have successfully assigned libraries and I can run a query against it but the libraries do not appear in the explorer. This includes the default libraries such as work and sashelp.

Anyone know how to get these to reappear?

Re: Libraries not appearing in the tree explorer despite being assigned EG7.1

If no libraries are appearing in EG's Server list, then the most likely explanation is that your OBS= system option is set to 0.  Thus, the query EG uses to retrieve the libraries returns no results -- can't populate the Servers list.

 

You can confirm this by submitting the code below and inspect the OBS= value in the log:

 

proc options option=obs;

run;

 

The most likely reason your OBS= system option is set to 0 is because your server has the SYNTAXCHECK system option turned on and an error was encountered running DATA step code in the server session.  In which case, either turn off syntax check mode (NOSYNTAXCHECK) or figure out why the ERROR is occurring and avoid it.

 

See this paper for details on SAS' Syntax Check mode:
