Where can I find more information on the SAS University Edition software?
Installation of SAS University Edition: Common error: VT-x is disabled in the BIOS for all CPU modes
Do you receive errors while trying to read in spreadsheet data?
When using the SAS University Edition, you should not worry if you receive this type of error:
ERROR: The SERVER= option is required for establishing a connection through the SAS/ACCESS Interface to PC Files.
ERROR: Error in the LIBNAME statement.
It is the result of executing the following statement for exercises on accessing spreadsheet data:
LIBNAME orionx PCFILES PATH=”&path\sales.xls”;.
You receive this error because the virtual machine does not contain the components of SAS/ACCESS and PC File server to read and write Excel or Microsoft Access files.

You just don’t have to study anymore all topics related to reading in RAW DATA nor the ARRAY topic. For further details we strongly advise you to consult the “Complete Exam Content Guide”.
