sasCommunity Tip of the Day

If you know a libref or fileref, the PATHNAME function can be used to return the physical location. In the following %LET statement the path for the libref SASCLASS will be stored in the macro variable &LOC.

libname sasclass 'c:\training\basics';
%let loc = %sysfunc(pathname(sasclass)); 

If the libref refers to more than one physical location, all of those locations will be returned, in quotes, separated by spaces, with the whole list in parentheses:

1    %put %sysfunc(pathname(sashelp));
( 'C:\Program Files\SAS\SAS 9.1\nls\en\SASCFG' 'C:\Program Files\SAS\SAS 9.1\core\sashelp'
'C:\Program Files\SAS\SAS 9.1\af\sashelp' 'C:\Program Files\SAS\SAS 9.1\assist\sashelp'
