I am getting an invalid file message. Here is the file that I copied from "properties:"


"C:\sas\Racewealth\usa_00031.dat";

Please help. Thank you. Hayward Derrick Horton

Answers

Are you updating both the libname and the filename command lines? Based on your above file path you should have the following code:


libname IPUMS "C:\sas\Racewealth";

filename ASCIIDAT "C:\sas\Racewealth\usa_00031.dat";


The libname tells SAS where to look for your data file and the filename tells SAS what file to use.


I hope this helps.
