Error: Web Browser...

The annoying error appears after a macros. Any ideas are very welcome.

Same thing happened to me, if I'm understanding your issue correctly.

Make sure your "Path" declaration is left justified (i.e. not preceded with blanks).

i.e.

You want: 

PATH = "D:\LinelistResults\"

And not:

PATH = " D:\LinelistResults\"

Re: Error: Web Browser...

: The message in the png file wasn't readable.  What are you running, what version of SAS are you using, on which platform, what browser do you use, and does what you're running involve a stored process?  Plus, is the error message readable and, if so, what does it actually say?

Re: Error: Web Browser...

Arthur and Tom, the message said:


"Cannot find

...: part of directory path...

Make sure the path or Internet address is correct."

SAS version: 9.3, platform: win 7, browser: I have both firefox and chrome installed.

"does what you're running involve a stored process?" (If I've translated correctly):

I execute a macros that searches for a .txt files in the directory mentioned in the message.


The output of the macros is .pdf files stored in that directory with the same name (but with

.pdf extension). The files are created, appeared in SAS Output window (as a list) and the

error occurred. The number of the error windows equals the number of files.


The names of the .txt (.pdf) files contain: Latin letters, numbers, and two symbols: _ and #.

Any suggestions now?

P.S.

By the way I tried to keep the events in the SAS Log window with the DMSSYNCHK but there

wasn't a record relative to the issue. How to keep all events stored in SAS Log? Also I find

macroses' events are poorly logged (in my hands without extra set-ups).

Looks like you are not find the file you are looking for.  You just need to debug your program.
