perhaps a rookie question...
I have a program that I run in SAS 9.3 UI. Is there a way to automate/schedule this program to run ?
I'm sure there is, but I'm wondering if there are SAS functions to write into the program to schedule it, or if there is are options in the UI that I can use.

You might look up running batch jobs and using a system scheduler to run a script to start SAS with the needed parameters. Options vary depending on OS and what you expect the program to do.

If you're on Windows, use the Windows scheduler.
First find out how to call your program from batch.
Second Add that command to a .bat file and schedule it.
Of course this all depends on your OS/SAS version. If you're using SAS connected to a server their may be many other issues.
