Hi Dave Wilkinson,
What you are running into is a bug in the Novell32 client as documented
in this usage note below. Your best bet is to get the latest Novell32
client or load up the Microsoft client. The reason you see it in SAS
is because we move more i/o and large datasets then most everyone else
you see. Novell does have a fix for this for NT systems but we have
not heard of a fix for windows 95 yet.
SAS Note: D629
Title: Invalid header and other errors when creating SAS datasets on
Invalid header or invalid password errors may be received
when creating SAS datasets on Novell networks. The problem
is especially likely to occur when using the Novell32 client.
The problem occurs because of problems in the Novell32 client
when it attempts to read datasets. To circumvent the problem
use the Microsoft Client instead.
There is a Novell Intranetware Client for Windows 95 update on the Novell
site, support.novell.com. It's found in the "Electronic Software
Distribution" area under "Intranetware Client 2.2 for Windows 95". I'm not
certain that this will solve the problem but we haven't run into it since
we installed the update.
Hope this helps
