Before you can read a data file, you must tell SAS Enterprise Guide where to find it. For any particular file, there may be several ways for you to do this. But, regardless of which method you use to locate a file, you always start by selecting File Open Data from the menu bar. Then in the Open Data From window, select either Local Computer or SAS Servers. If you select Local Computer, then the Open From My Computer window opens. If you select SAS Servers, the Open From SAS Servers window opens.
