Exporting 100's of images

I'm running a proc cluster on a linux sas server. and producing a proc tree png which gets exported to a windows location. During this process the height and width of the pixels gets reset and the dendrogram is unreadable. 


I've given up trying to fix that as I've noticed a few problems when converting files from linux to windows using base sas code, where as exports seem to work fine.


So my question is, can I create a loop in Enterprise Guide; SAS Step to run cluster and tree, an export step, next loop, with a work table to control the loops?

Try defining heights and widths in terms of a different unit, cm or in. Pixels are always dependent on the display system.

And maybe sent the result to RTF. You don't mention which output destination you are actually using.

Yes, this would be a basic macro loop. The other option, create a macro and use CALL EXECUTE within a dataset to execute N times. 

See documentation under Call Execute for an example.


I think when transferring files from Linux to Windows you need to do a binary transfer to ensure it comes across correctly. I think I recall hearing this, but if it sounds like gibberish please ignore this.
