Connection Failed message when Exporting

Hi

I am using SAS 9.1 with Service Pak 4 and whenever I try to export a data set to MS-Access or Excel I get the error message:

Error: Connect: (and then tiny square box)
Error: Error in Libname Statement

Note that I just recently renewed my SAS license and I didn't have this problem prior to that (meaning it shouldn't be the code I'm using).

Thanks for any and all assistance.

Re: Connection Failed message when Exporting

Hi

I fixed my own problem. I did a little more digging and found this article:
http://support.sas.com/kb/20/002.html

It described my situation exactly and indicated that the problem sometimes exists with certain printers. I changed the default printer on my system and now I can export again!
