Default "view" preferences at startup of SAS

Hello all

I am using SAS for a while now but still have not figured this out:

Currently I use SAS 9.3 on Windows 7 and what I would like is that the explorer view is set to details (without tree view) when I start SAS. If possible I would also like to have the output window closed. Right now I always have to click View->Details.

Is there a way to achieve this via the settings or maybe a tiny macro at startup?

Admittedly this is not a serious problem at all, but one can still ask about it.

Regards

Bernhard

in the options used as your session starts add

-initcmd "listing off"

that ensures that the old output window is closed (but not the new output viewer)

when you have all the windows in the arrangement you prefer, issue the command

WSAVE ALL

that saves window information in your  SASUSER.PROFILE

so ensure you look after that resource with proper opening, saving and closing - perhaps occasional backup too

good luck

Hi.

In a new SAS session, change the view to details.

Then, under Tools/Options/Preferences

Under the "general" tab click on "Save settings on exit"

OK.

Done.

As far as the output window to not show up...not sure Smiley Happy

Thank you. But that does not seem to work on my machine. Anyway it is not really an important matter.
