Default open file to SAS 9.4 vs. Enterprise

Hello,

 

I use base SAS but when I double click on a SAS file to open it (base SAS is not yet open), the file opens in Enterprise (which I'm not yet familiar with). How do I get SAS to default to opening my files in base SAS?  Screenshot of menu avaiable when I select Start, Programs on my computer, attached.

 

Thanks!

Image doesn't appear to be attached.

In the SAS program folder (from the start menu all programs) you may have a sub-folder about Renewal and Utilities. Look in there for the Manage Files utility. That will allow setting the default program for SAS related files if it is there.

Also when you open files - you can right click on the program/file you are opening and select open with SAS Base vs. SAS EG.

I believe it is possible to uninstall EG. Also I think you can install SAS without EG, EG is very large?

Is EG Enterpise? I'd like to learn to Enterprise it as I have trainings available to me. Thanks.

Yes - EG = Enterprise Guide = or perhaps called Enterprise for some Smiley Very Happy

 

Having converted - I prefer EG and I like being able to organize all my SAS programs.

It's also made for non-programmers where you can point and click.

But if you keep your style and program - you can use EG at least for organization if nothing else Smiley Happy (although EG can do a TON of things)
