i tried the dcreate() function like below,
and SAS throws the following error message
34 data _null_;
NOTE: SCL source line.
ERROR 68-185: The function DCREATE is unknown, or cannot be accessed.
i am using pc sas 8.2 - is this because i dont have the necessary
components installed or something of that sort?
i was ok with the x command (apart from the command from splashes),
but when i moved the develpment into the server
X cd &rootDir.; /*rootDir is \\myserver\myparent\'*/
wouldnt work (it is understandable as a direct CD to a server location
like this doesnt work in dos)
so, i gotta do it with the mapped drive (i.e. P:\myparent\)..
i dont like this as different users could have different drive
letters.. in which case i have to take their driver letter as a
hope DCREATE would work... if you guys know why i am getting the error
