Is that space between the end of "My Documents" and "\Interbase" really there in your code? If so--any difference if you remove it?

I am trying to access Interbase files through SAS, but I am having a lot of problems. I do have SAS/ACCESS installed on my computer, as a proc setint confirmed:

Product expiration dates: ---Base Product 30JUN2008 ---SAS/ STAT 30JUN2008 ---SAS/ GRAPH 30JUN2008 ---SAS/ ETS 30JUN2008 ---SAS/ FSP 30JUN2008 ---SAS/ OR 30JUN2008 ---SAS/ IML 29APR2008 ---SAS/ CONNECT 30JUN2008 ---OR OPT 30JUN2008 ---OR PRS 30JUN2008 ---OR IVS 30JUN2008 ---OR LSO 30JUN2008 ---SAS/ACCESS Interface to PC Files 30JUN2008

Here is my syntax: libname files odbc "C:\Documents and Settings\smccabe\My Documents \Interbase";

and here is the error I get: 5 libname files odbc "C:\Documents and Settings\smccabe\My Documents \Interbase"; ERROR: The ODBC engine cannot be found. ERROR: Error in the LIBNAME statement.

It just seems to be unable to find the ODBC functionality.

Any suggestions?
