Hi All,


We are running SAS Viya on Unix and every time I create a file on SAS Studio, I need to manually download the file into windows. I am somehow trying to automate this.

Any idea what code runs in the background when you right click on a folder in SAS Viya and chose Download File ?


Or if anyone knows an alternate solution to automate the download of files from SAS Studio to Windows directory ?


Kind Regards and Thanks in Advance 🙂

Have your admins set up a shared network resource which is mounted on the SAS server and accessible by the Windows clients. Once you know the UNIX path to the mountpoint, you use it in your SAS code.
