I used to a batchrun file to include the sas programs to run sequencially and automatically, but in SAS EG (I am using 7.12) I cannot do this. I searched and found some people talking about the schedule project function in EG. Is there another way to do this?
How about write a small program and call each programs to run in this small program?

In E.G. you can still save your codes apart from the project itself. By doing this, the codes will turn up to be shortcuts (with the characteristic arrow on the codes icon) to the “.sas” files that you will create.
Therefore, once you saved them as independent files you can still edit them using the E.G. and still use a batch file to run them on the order you want them to be executed.
However, on the E.G. you can create this order by linking the codes on the order you need/want. Pointing your mouse on the edge of a code icon, the mouse pointer will change and them, you can create "a link/arrow" to the next code, respecting the order you need. Link them all and press F8 to run them all together. By doing so, the E.G. will start executing from the first one and will list the others on the queue list.
Hope this can be of some help for you.

for the first method, I need to figure out where the SAS program is. I am running SAS EG on UNIX server, not on windows.
for the second method, I did not get it. Is it to create a process flow? I did not see any arrow when I put my mouse on the edge of a SAS program icon.
