Task 1: Key Concepts about Creating Folders

In this task, you will create folders that will hold your SAS transport files and documentation, and your permanent SAS dataset library.  The folder structure recommended in this task will be used throughout the tutorial. If you decide to use a different arrangement of folders, then you will need to update the sample programs by changing the path to the dataset.

You will need to include the path to the dataset you wish to use in every program. By creating a folder directly on the C: drive, you won't have a long file path to type or remember.
