#Continuing my sas.get saga. Hmisc has been been
updated however I am still
getting the same problem. I seem to have aa SAS
problem as well as

LIBNAME dd1 = 'F:\testsas'
will not work and it should whereas Libname
However I still cannot get sas.get to read a simple
file which does work with
LIBNAME dd1 = 'F:\testsas' . Can anyone see if I am
misreading the Help or
making some kind of stupid typing mistake? I also have
tried running it on the
C drive with no luck. Thanks
Windows XP, R 2.4.1
