Is there a way to copy and save the a program that you have open into another directory automatically? For instance, I have a production version of SAS open and I run it. I would like the SAS program to automatically save and place a copy of itself in another location.
Production SAS program located C:\
When it's running it's exporting data to A:\
I want to save and copy the program from C:\ to A:\ automatically.

It depends on what you want to achieve. What value is there in copying a program over once its run, why not save the log there, that would show you what has been run (in full with options turned on).
There are a few ways, the simplest would be to have a main program which copy's this over using system commands - x 'copy "..." "..."';
You could also read the text file in and print it out to another file.
You could also re-direct the log.
