Viewing SAS Libraries

Viewing the Contents of a SAS Library

You've seen that you can assign librefs in order to access different types of data. Using the Programming Workspace explained that after you have assigned a libref, you can view
  • details about the library that the libref references
  • the library's contents
  • contents and properties of files in the library.
The libraries that are currently defined for your SAS session are listed under Libraries in the Explorer window. To view details about a library, double-click Libraries (or select LibrariesOpen from the pop-up menu). Then select ViewDetails.
Information for each library (name, engine, type, host pathname, and date modified) is listed under Active Libraries.
