ERROR: Physical file does not exist, /pbr/biconfig/940/Lev1/SASApp/C:\\books\\learning\\mydata.txt


I was trying to upload a file using SAS Studio.  Does anyone know why this may be happening?

The SAS behind SAS Studio is a Workspace Server, which runs remotely or in a VM (in case of SAS UE). You have to "upload" the file to that server machin _and_ then follow the naming conventions of the server operating system.

In your case it is obvious that you have a BI server ("biconfig") installed. Make sure that you put your file in a location that the workspace server process can "see", and then supply the correct pathname to SAS.

Either you have access to a network location that is also mounted on the UNIX system where SAS runs, or you have to transfer the file with SFTP or similar.

PS please use the correct community, this has got nothing to do with Web Report Studio
