ERROR: Physical file does not exist

[ Edited ]

Hi everyone, I'm new to SAS. I'm using SAS Studio in my MacBook NOT window, I need help in how I can copy the path for a file to write it infile SAS statement?

I keep getting this error (ERROR: Physical file does not exist, /opt/sasinside/SASConfig/Lev1/SASApp/)

I went to the file location, clicked on the Get Info, copy the path (where), the file name & extension, paste it after the infile SAS statement between two comma ('') but it keep giving me the same error everytime.

I would appreciate if someone can help me with this error.

Re: ERROR: Physical file does not exist

The solution is not OS dependent.

 

1. Set up shared drive called myfolders - see installation instructions

2. reference file as indicated - '/folders/myfolders/myfile.txt' 

The path is case sensitive since the VM is a unix machine.

 

Files do need to be in the shared drive. 

 

If that doesnt work, post pics showing your shared folder, the VM set up for shared folder and the folders in SAS under the Folder/Files/Server Pane.
