I have the first session up, I want to open a second one so I can run two programs at once, etc. How can I accomplish this.
As an aside, is it possible to hide the "variable name change" warning in 9.3 with proc import?

just click on your icon again and you'll open another session
Here are the notes and warnings in the 2nd session:
NOTE: All registry changes will be lost at the end of the session.
WARNING: Unable to copy SASUSER registry to WORK registry. Because of this,
WARNING: you will not see registry customizations during this session.
NOTE: Unable to open SASUSER.PROFILE. WORK.PROFILE will be opened instead.
NOTE: All profile changes will be lost at the end of the session.
NOTE: This SAS session is using a registry in WORK. All changes will be lost at the end of this
Why do you want to do this?

Ron: I often have multiple sessions running, especially when I have to process a lot of data, and can cut a 20 hour job down to 1 or 2 hours real time.
I like to access my SAS profile and defaults for each job thus, in the icons properties I include the cfg file location along with a -rsasuser
That will provide the defaults, eliminate the warning, and only leave the notes and fact that profile changes won't be saved.
