Sounds like this is confusing the existence of datasets on the disk versus however many SAS EG caps out in the data view window. I'll try to take a further look but I'm no EG expert. However, for so long as everything is hard coded and you don't use the EG project interface to create a process using all of the datasets, it should not cause any issue.

If it worries you, you can go to
tools->options->results general->set Maximum Number of Output Data Sets to add to the project
To 300. However, be aware, this will significantly hinder processing time of your project. I have mine set to 0 because of a giant proc model program I had helped someone with on these forums. I get the warning whenever I produce a DS but unless I need to look directly at the data after each run, I save the time EG spends opening the DSs in the output windows each run.

For what it's worth -
%do i=1 %to 500;
set %do i=1 %to 500; ds&i. %end; ;
Produces the appropriate dataset TEST with 500 obs in work. It is just not opened in the output window (none are in my case since I set the parameter mentionned in previous reply to 0 - you would/should get DS1-DS50 opened only)

Have you tried set the data on i = 1 and using proc append for the i > 1 ?
Of course this assumes you are getting the right counts and file displaying in your log.

Sorry totally misread the request since it was in the EG forum. The datasets should be created and you can through the library explorer but Im with Vince28@Statcan if you tried have EG open or add all the datasets Im not sure how useful or usable it would be from either from the time or clutter it would take.
