Just like many of you, I have many requests by users to upload various data sets to VA. I mostly do it with SAS EG. (Why SAS EG when you can do this with VA?, I'm just a big fan of EG and and have many use for it when managing various issues of SAS).


And probably like many of you, I've created a SAS EG project to upload various data sources to VA. Lately I ran into this issue:


The internal "Upload to LASR" function in SAS EG makes use of such code: (e.g. Loading the "data set A" table. Yes I know, it should never have such a naming, but stay with me)


LIBRARY=%nrstr(/Products/SAS Visual Analytics Administrator/Visual Analytics LASR)
, FOLDER=%nrstr(/The/Data/Source/data set A));


The above runs fine even though empty spaces are part of the table name.


If you try to upload multiple tables in batch with code like this: (which could include table names with spaces):


LIBRARY=%nrstr(/Products/SAS Visual Analytics Administrator/Visual Analytics LASR)
, FOLDER=&tblFolder.);


The code fails on "FOLDER=&tblFolder." statement with:


ERROR: Given folder path '/The/Data/Source/data set A'n is not found.


I've tried many quote/unquote variations and can't get it to work.






Somehow your folder name became a name literal  '/The/Data/Source/data set A'n (are you using the NLITERAL function)

For a Foldername this is not necessary.


Change your code that creates the &tblFolder macro variable, so you are not using the name literal.
