to force a specific temporary library to appear for every sas session

Hi,

 

Is there a way to force a specific temporary library to appear for every sas session? Is it possible to have GRIDWORD appear as an option?

 

THanks

You can add a LIBNAME satement to your AUTOEXEC file and now the library will appear every time you launch SAS.

 

I don't know what GRIDWORD is.

Having the same library appear in each EG session seems to me to be a permanent library. What is it about this library that is "temporary"? Is this library just for your use and not for others? I also don't know what you mean by GRIDWORD.

The original poster probably meant GRIDWORK, which is a common temp library that appears in SAS Grid Computing sessions.  Maybe you want to simply guarantee that when you're not working in a grid session, your program can still rely on a GRIDWORK library?

 

If you want to assign such a library name yourself, you can do this by:

 

  • Creating an alias for WORK:
  • libname GRIDWORK (WORK);
  • Creating a new temporary library in any path:
  • libname GRIDWORK "c:\temp" ACCESS=TEMP;

You could add these statements in Tools->Options->SAS Programs, Submit SAS code when server is connected.

The gridwork directory has special technical implementation. Ask your sasgrid implementators..
