ERROR: User have no access to data-level authorization


Would anyone like to help me on this error:

When I wrote a STP program with a macro to load a txt file into sas, the system told me an Error like this: User have no access to appropriate data-level authorization of file DATACTR.SFFB20100930.DATA.

It seems to me something was wrong with the libaray of DATACTR. I tried to pre-assign this library with different ways as such:
1. Tested the code from original "libname datactr 'D:\StockDataCenter" to "libname datactr BASE 'D:\StockDataCenter' access =readonly'",
the error changed to another one like this: 'ERROR: rejected the writable access to DATACTR.SFFB20101008.DATA'.

2. Tested the pre-assigning library using engings by following the guide of page 197 through 209, SAS® 9.1.3 Intelligence Platform Administration Guide. Unfortunately, the error was still there, even if I reboot the computer to restart all relative services.

I tried to check the server log file to verify the success of pre-assignment, however, I have no idea where is the log file. is it in dir of ...\Lev1\SASMain\MetadataServer\logs? I took into the recent log file but did not find the key word of 'IsPreassigned= '.


So far, I tried several times with no significant progress, so I would like to post the primary STP code as below and ask for your help :

options NONOTES;

libname datactr 'D:\DataCenter';
libname macslib 'D:\Mylib\Macros';

options fmtsearch=(Datactr);
options mstored sasmstore=macslib;



%Batch_Import_fb_sf(sf, &COMPUTING_DATE, &COMPUTING_DATE);
(Note: DATACTR is in this macro)


By the way, when I varified access to the the library of DATACTR, I can import those tables of DATACTR and view data from DI Studio, was it a bit strange? if this means the pre-assigning library of DATACTR is OK? (the OS is windows server 2003)

It would be very much appreciated if anyone can help, thank you in advance for your time!
