Hi SAS Community! The other day I faced the following issue when I needed to create a project and import a dataset.

In case you receive this error : "The data advisor failed to run on the selected"

Please read our SAS Usage Note 65282 and our documentation advised in the note below :

"Data set names and variable names can have a maximum length of 32 characters."

In order to create a project, the data set name cannot contain any of the following characters: / \ * ? " < > | : - . &

I hope this may help to save up you time
