SAS Enterprise Guide 7.1 - Set file navigation from a specific location

Hi all,

 

I know you can set file navigation for SAS EG on SAS MC under SASApp - Logical Workspace Server --> SASApp - Workspace Server --> Properties --> Options tab --> Advanced Options. But there is any way to define this location using sasv9.cfg, maybe with SET SASMYFILES? The workspace server runs on HP-UX.

No. That's a setting existing exclusively in SAS metadata.

Hi @KurtBremser,

 

Thanks for your answer. There is any way to define path with macro variable or an environment variable for substitution? I'm running on HP-UX.

Macro variables are not yet available when the SAS process is starting, so that wouldn't work.

Just ran a test with the environment variable $HOME (setting $HOME/sasuser.v94 as navigation root), and that failed also.

So the only variability you have is the UNIX user's home directory (which is the default setting anyway).
