Using SAS Essentials with Enterprise - finding practice files

I am following the SAS programming 1 essentials but finding that it isn't geared up for people using Enterprise.

I am on Lesson 7 and I've been asked to find the practice files that we generated at the start so that I can practise accessing excel files. However, as far as I can see we only generated datasets in WORK. I've found the corresponding dataset, 'Sales', but simply exporting it to an excel file doesn't produce the file the course expects me to have. Has anyone done the Programming Essentials course with Enterprise?

 

Thanks,

I would suggest going back to "Course Overview and Data Setup". Selecting "Setup for Base SAS on Windows". Opening the setup instructions and getting the files from step 2. You can then put those files where ever is convenient and access them from there.

Thanks. I skipped over it for the time being and the following exercises weren't a problem. I may go back to it at the end. It seems like it would take little effort on the part of SAS.com to adapt it for Enterprise users though!
