Problems using the EG course material.

Hi there,

I am pretty new to SAS so this may be a daft query. I am working my way through some course material on EG and have been happily opening and maniupulating the supplied datasets in my own projects.

The problem is when I open one of the readymade supplied projects, the datasets in the project flow point to the WORK library e.g. WORK.MNTH8_2007.

The work library is essentially empty so I get an error when I try to open them.

I do have these datasets (e.g. MNTH8_2007) in a folder on my own drive but am unsure how to utilise them in this scenario.

Regards,

John

Re: Problems using the EG course material.

Hello Saint Regent,

You can simply copy the dataset to work library like this:
[pre]
libname my 'C:\MyLib';
data MNTH8_2007;
set my.MNTH8_2007;
run;
[/pre]
where C:\MyLib is a folder on your drive contaning the dataset.

Sincerely,
SPR
