You can still program a fileref in code anyway, so what's the deal?

If you need to protect files or directories, do so on the OS level.

Thanks for your swift reply! Kurt.


If I know the path on the OS level I can access the files, outside the SAS folder. like c drive files located on the root level.


I want to access on file which are in the D drive SAS.


Please refer the screenshot in which I have created a file shortcut c:\file.txt and I am able to acess with my normal SAS rights on the SAS Studio

Please make up your mind.

Do you want to have access to a location, or do you want to prevent it? Right now I can't make sense of your two posts.

Hi Kurt,



Sorry for confusing you.


I want to access the files inside the SAS folder (SAS Binaries or SAS Config) i.e. D:\SAS94 (which is already working)

I dont want to access the files outside the SAS folder like files from C drive E drive, and D drive other than SAS folder.(this we have to fix)


I hope this gives you a clear idea, what I am looking for.


Thanks in advance,

Then you should take a look at the LOCKDOWN feature.
