Unable to download file

I have a project where I have taken the auto generated code and then tried to modify it to generate output. Each time I run the code I get the message window
Unable to download file and a file named

/saswork/SAS_work/#LN00017

is generated. How can I avoid the message window and keep from generating the extra file? I've tried everything I can think of but no luck

PROC SQL;

I guess I should add that maybe what I'm looking for is what is the minimum amount of the wrapper code that you need to keep when you try to take the generated code and then place it in a macro in a code block

Re: Unable to download file

I think this is all you need to keep. You might have to set the XPIXELS and YPIXELS to something other than 0 for the graph to work properly.


OPTIONS DEV=ACTIVEX;
GOPTIONS XPIXELS=0 YPIXELS=0;

data QUERY2;
set QUERY;
run;

proc freq data=QUERY2; table size*error/nocol nocum nofreq nopercent;

PROC SQL;
CREATE VIEW WORK.SORT AS
SELECT T.mean_error, T.mean_sample_error, T.size, t.error
FROM WORK.QUERY2 as T
order by t.size
;
QUIT;
SYMBOL1 INTERPOL=NONE HEIGHT=10pt VALUE=CIRCLE LINE=1 WIDTH=2 ;

Re: Unable to download file

Are you using the code from an Import Data task? If so, it generates these temporary #LN filename references, that only exist while the EG session is open. When you exit EG the reference is lost.

I would suggest that above the code for the import data task you add a file reference:

filename myfile "path-to-your-file";

Then in the import data task code, replace "#LN00017" with "myfile" and try it again.

There's an added complication if you're sas server is a unix server... if the path to your file is not visible from the server this won't work, but I think if you have sas on a windows server it should.

Hope that helps...
