libname test1 'path1' ;

libname test2 'path2' ;

 

I have written code  like above. By using that above code we can create 2 libraries test1 and test2 .

But question is:

how to create 2 libraries by using single libname statement?

I have tried below but it's not working.

 

libname test1 'path1'  test2 'path2'   ;

You can't do that. The documentation for LIBNAME indicates only one libref per statement.

 

What you can do is assign two (or more) folders to a single libref in a LIBNAME statement, if that would suit your needs.

Why? There are many ways to declare libraries so if there's a reason there may be other methods.

You can check libname() function .
Or combine these two path into one libname.

libname test ('path1' 'path2' );
