Saving sas temporary data set in a permanent library

Hello All,

How do we save a temporary data set in a permanent library in SAS EG? I tried to copy the dataset from the work library and paste it in the permanent library, but it gives an error.

Thanks.

I tried copying and pasting a SAS dataset from the WORK library to a permanent library and it worked fine for me. What was your error? Do you have write permissions on the permanent library?

What are the properties of the MAR15 library? Can you screenshot that? I suspect you only have read-only access to this library.

I just checked. I have the access to this library and I created this library.

In that case is it a "Metadata" library? The evidence is in the log error. What options are defined for this library?
