How do I access my local files using a file path in Virtual Lab in programs such as SAS, SPSS, R, etc?

This problem occurs because when using Virtual Lab, the program defaults to the harddrive on our servers.  However, you should be able to correct this by using the following format:  “\\Client\C$\pathtofile…”.  “\\Client\” tells it to go to the client’s (your) computer.  From there, you can use the file path associated with your personal computer.

The method of importing/opening a file differs by program.  Below is a screen capture for opening a file located on a user’s “Documents” folder on their Mac from Microsoft Word 2013 (The user account name in this example is “itslabs”, so the path to the Documents folder is “\\client\C$\Users\itslabs\Documents”):
