Calcite | Level 5



I downloaded the zip file to install the subfolders 'Data', 'Activities', 'Demos', 'Output' and 'Practices', but when I run the code it says that after unzipping the file program was not found and that I need to download the file and unzip manually then run cre8data. sas again. 


It also says that the path specified for data files (/home/u63910051/EPG1V2) is not valid.


Can anybody help me please? Thank you!

Did you read the notes and  change the file path in the program? You must change the file path associated with the %let statement to the file path where you downloaded the course data to.  For example, if you download to c:\temp then you must modify as follows:

%let path = c:\temp;




Hi: If you look at the instructions, when you download the zip file for the SAS OnDemand for Academics instructions, you need to make your EPG1V2 folder directly under the Files (Home) top folder. Then, you need to upload the contents of the zip file (only a single .SAS program) into your EPG1V2 folder.
Then you need to run the program. Here's YouTube video we made that shows how to make the Programming 1 data on the SAS OnDemand server: . If you continue to have issues, then please send mail to for more one-on-one help.
