|Subject: ||Dataset wont Delete|
I am very confused.
In my program I make a dataset (with PROC SQL) called _toexport.
The dataset is then exported to EXCEL.
I then try to delete the dataset so that it wont accidently get exported
again using the following code:
PROC DATASETS MT=DATA LIB=WORK KILL;
In the explorer window under work the _toexport dataset is not shown. But
when I type VT _toexport on the command line, the dataset opens. Also if
I do :
The data is read in!
But, the following code brings up a warning that the dataset is not found!
PROC DATASETS MT=DATA LIB=WORK;
Why can't I delete this dataset?
