Check re-create this library at startup to use library across sessions.jpg

 

If you want that library automatically defined across sessions, make sure you check the box for Re-create this library at startup.

Add the code to the AUTOEXEC. 

Look at the top right hand corner to access the AUTOEXEC file.

Thank you very much for answer. I faced the same problem, but now solved. One thing I want to know that I am unable to find physical location of the folder on my computer.

If you right click on the specific libname, then choose Properties, the Library Properties window will open, and show you the path.

Thanks a lot.

My observations.
1) in sas University edition while assigning library, in code we must type path = '/folders/myfolders'. Then only it assigns.

2)it is irrespective of the actual physical location. It will automatically consider the shared folder location. But in code path must be as I shown above.

For ex. I have assigned library study1, by giving path in code as above, but it's actual location on my laptop is f/sasUniversityedition /myfolders.

@BHARAT_SAS This isn't quite correct.  The path is specified this way because SAS UE is running on a VM, which you could consider to be a separate computer. The shared drive set up path is the Unix path set up, not your local drive access. 

 

If desired, you can set up additional shared folders and libraries or other libraries underneath. Please search on here or the SAS University Edition Help Centre to see how to set up additional folders/libraries as desired.
