I am importing a number of excel files using the libname statement and get the following error on the 66th library I try to create...

ERROR: Connect: Unspecified error ERROR: Error in the LIBNAME statement.

The syntax for importing is good so I am assuming there is a limit of 65 excel files that can be opening in any given session.

Any ideas for a work around and I am specifically looking for something that will allow me to close some libraries (read excel files) and then open others. When I importing and aggregating the infomation I need I wont need to create so many libnames. At present I am just (manually) exploring what I have in these excel files. I had thought the libname statement would have been a good way to open lot of excel files and gather metadata on the sheet names number of row/columns etc...

Thanks for the help,
