Syntax Description

library-specification-1”… “library-specification-n

specifies one or more valid Windows pathnames or environment variables that are associated with pathnames for a SAS library. Remember that a pathname applies only to the directory or subdirectory level. If you list only one library specification, the parentheses are optional. The value for library-specification must resolve to a valid Windows pathname.


The SASUSER system option specifies the SAS library that contains a user's Profile catalog. The default value for SASUSER is defined in the SAS configuration file, which you can change when you install SAS. If you do not use the SASUSER system option when you invoke SAS (either in the configuration file or as part of the SAS command), the Sasuser library is set to be equal to the Work library, which is temporary.
