Libaries

I am new to SAS.  I have just set up the UNiversity Edition on My computer. 

 

I have also downloaded Ron Cody's book "An introduction to SAS University Edition"

 

According the book the navigation pane shold have nuber of tags . I have TASK and Snippets.  However, Libaries and File Short Cuts are not present. 

 

How can I find these tags please.

 

My  os is windows 10 with VM player as a virtual machine.

My Browser is Firefox 44

regards

Re: Libaries

There are no drive names in SAS UE, only folders starting at root. UE runs in UNIX, not the famed product from Moronic Systems.

There's probably a problem with the shared folder that needs to be set when the VM is installed.

Hi Friend,

 

Please use following statement to create library:-

For ex:- libname "D\MySASLib";
