Unable to Download SAS Data Set to local Machine

Hi,

 

Using SAS EG, I am trying to import an Excel file and save the resultant SAS data set on to my local machine.

 

When I go to "download data files to PC" option in DATA menu of SAS EG, I get the following message in Log

 

Copying SAS data files to P:\HealthServices\VBI\VBI\Qtr Std Reporting\VBO\MEB\Quarterly Shares Savings - Loss Report\Working docs


Total transfer: 0 bytes in 0.00 seconds
Total number of files processed: 0

 

And Data sets are not copied. Could someone help on this please ?

 

Thank you,

Varun

Hi,

 

That seem's odd, the data transfer works fine as long as you have the access to the directory and have sufficient space. I have been doing this process and saving the data to network drives, but never got any issue.

 

Can you please share one screenshot please?

 


Cheers from India!
