unusual extensions when saving datasets

Hi

When attempting to save datasets, I sometimes get a '.clt" extension. Sometimes   '.log' will appear behind '.sas' while saving and I find that I have a log rather than the dataset. 

 

Thanks

Re: unusual extensions when saving datasets

The answer below assumes you're using SAS University Edition.

 

How are you saving your dataset? Using the point and click tool?

 

The easiest way would be to create a library and copy the file to the location.

 

Instructions on how to set up shared drive to save your dataset can be found here:

libname myloc '/folders/myshortcuts/my_data';

proc datasets library=work nodetails nolist;
copy in=work out=myloc;
select data_save;
run;quit;

libname myloc;
