Data Download & Project Setup
Before we start the training, we first need to set up the project.
Download the zip folder below:
The zip folder contains all of the files you need for Part 1 of this clinical project.
You must unzip the folder and save it in the "/SASUniversityEdition/myfolders" folder:
This step is crucial.
Please ensure you have saved the entire folder under the "/SASUniversityEdition/myfolders" folder.
We will teach you how to import these files in later sections.
However, the folder has to be in the correct location.
Now, let's do a quick test to see if you have saved the folder in the correct location.
Run the code below in your SAS Studio (without changing any part of the code):
PROC IMPORT DATAFILE= "/folders/myfolders/Clinical Project - Part 1/data/data_excel/CDM/death.xlsx"
DBMS=XLSX OUT= death REPLACE;
If your folder is saved in the right location, you will have created the DEATH data set in the WORK library:
If you see the following error message, it indicates that SAS cannot access the files:
ERROR: Physical file does not exist
Please check the following, if you see the above error message:
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you still see the same error message.
