Re: PREVCMD

Herman,

If you are asking about PREVCMD then you are really asking about DM commands and how you might be able to use them. Take a look at: http://www2.sas.com/proceedings/sugi23/Posters/p182.pdf, although I am sure you can Google numerous other references.

in addition to the paper referred to by Art,
In the old SAS environment that used to be called SAS Display Manager, there is a command called COMMAND for which SAS On-line Documentation provides this

COMMAND <<WINDOW <"title"> | BAR

MAX=max-commands
specifies the maximum number of commands to "remember" in the command bar drop- down list. Valid values are 0 through 50.

You must specify the WINDOW or BAR argument in the command before specifying the MAX argument.

So if your max is set below 50, then COMMAND bar max=50 will make a difference.
