When SAS Enterprise Guide is installed on a PC without a locally installed SAS server, you cannot save SAS data files on the local machine in SAS data set format (sas7bdat).
SAS Enterprise Guide can read local SAS data sets without the use of a locally installed SAS server, but it relies on the SAS server to write SAS data sets. When SAS Enterprise Guide analyzes local data by using a remote server, it reads the data by using the SAS OLEDB Local Data Provider and writes the records into a data set in the WORK library on the remote server.
In order to move data between the local PC and the remote SAS server, there are now two file transfer tasks to download and upload SAS data sets. These tasks capture the upload and download operations as steps within your project flow, so that they can be repeated each time your project is run.
