Hi all, 

 

I recently installed SAS Studio University edition on my laptop. 

 

I created a folder called perm in my local computer -> my documents and then wrote this libname statement. but there's an error. How do i resolve this ? and i need to use proc contents to see mt dataset, 

 

 82         
 83         libname perm 'C:\Users\manya\Documents\DATA\flatiron\perm' ;
 NOTE: Library PERM does not exist.
 84         
 85         proc contents data = data.Patient_Diagnosis;
 ERROR: File DATA.PATIENT_DIAGNOSIS.DATA does not exist.
 86         run ;
 
 NOTE: Statements not processed because of errors noted above.
 NOTE: PROCEDURE CONTENTS used (Total process time):
       real time           0.00 seconds
       cpu time            0.00 seconds
       
 NOTE: The SAS System stopped processing this step because of errors.

You need to use the shared folder set up, myfolders.

You can access it via:

 

libname demo '/folders/myfolders/';

To use your own data or data in a different folder you can either move that folder to myfolders or you can create another shortcut reference to that folder in Oracle VM. Then to understhand how to access it, find it in Servers Files & Folders, right click it for the path.
