Oh right, I assumed he wanted the flat file name. I happened to have a
program open with that in it. If he wants the sas dataset name then he just
needs the directory of the work lib or permanent library, the dataset name
and the file ending. Dictionary tables may be of some use but I have to
ask, "But why do you want to that?"...
No more shots from the hip today,
