ERROR: Physical file does not exist

I am new to SAS Universtiy. I have followed the instructions and was not able to find them helpful. 

I can see the data set that I have imported but when I ask SAS to run it I get the error "physical file does not exist"

 

Can I please get a breakdown of what to do if this code pops up and how to fix it?

 

Thank you all very much.

Go back and read the installation instructions thoroughly. You need to set up shared drive, put file in the shared folder and access it via a unix path.

Look under Find a community>Learning>Analytics U on here for multiple issues with this exact situation. or even search with your exact title.

Can you type out a step by step process to help me Reeza?

I got the data into my SAS library but it is just not recognizing it.

See Cynthia Zender's answer here, it is the step by step process.If that still doesn't work, post your code and error message.
