Log Window always empty

Hi,

recently I've changed the font of my log window but after then it is always empty.

Also if I sumbit some code, nothing appears in Log windows.

I've tried to rollback the font to the default one but the problem doesn't go away.

Could some one give me some check to do in my system in order to understand what is wrong?

Many thanks.

Can you try the below and see if it works by any chance?

Help pull-down menu and select "Show Application Log".

Hi Hima,

Where I can find "Show Application Log"? In my menu I've Help but in the Help button drop down I can find only the voices attached into the picture.

It seems there is no "Show Application Log"

thanks

Try logging off from SAS and restart your pc. Lets see if that works.

I'm sorry but I didn't work.

Do you think it could be referred to DISPLAY setting?

No it doesn't.

Running

proc options;

run;

the log window still remain empty.

Thanks

Re: Log Window always empty

I have to wonder if your log is being redirected in either your config or autoexec file.  The process for doing so is described at: http://support.sas.com/documentation/cdl/en/basess/58133/HTML/default/viewer.htm#a001330273.htm

An easy check would be to run:

proc printo;

run;

And then run something else and see if it appears in your log.

Since Barry mentioned one of the obvious possibilities, given the way you asked the question, I have to ask another:  have you tried to click on View Log from the menu at the top of the screen?

Re: Log Window always empty

I've tried to following code:

proc printto print='mypath/aaa.txt' new;
run;

proc print data=mydata;
   title 'bla bla bla';
run;

It created a file in

'mypath/aaa.txt' with rows contained in the dataset mydata.

After this, I run

proc printto;
run;

and then run again

proc print data=mydata;
   title 'bla bla bla';
run;

but nothing has appeared in my log window.

The very strange thing is that sometimes, when I click on Edit --> Clear All in log window, appears the row

NOTE: Line have been cleared.

Some other time, if I close the log window, try to re-open it and try to click on Edit --> Clear All, the sentence above does not appear
