I feel like this should be a lot easier to do than it has been (for me, so far).
I want to select a code chunk, hit a function key (or any set of keys really) and have it clear the Log, clear the Results Viewer*, then run my code.
*Whether or not this key-combe clears the long Results list is irrelevant to me, but I don't want the Results window to pop-up annoyingly.
I have tried every combination on this page: https://communities.sas.com/t5/SAS-Procedures/Clearing-Results-Viewer-in-9-3/td-p/53232, but none of them work.
I can get the Log to clear and run my code, but can't get the Results Viewer to clear, just as though I was pressing Control-E with the Results Viewer as the front-most window.

What SAS client are you talking about: Enterprise Guide, SAS Display Manager, or SAS Studio? The post you link to will only work for SAS Display Manager AKA full SAS installed on your PC.

Thanks for the response!
This combo opens main Results window, leaves it visible, opens the Output window, and moves my other windows around. I just want the log and Results View cleared and the code run.
I was able to piece together this code:
log; clear; odsresults; clear; odsresults; cancel; wpgm; submit;
which mostly works. There's lots of movement and flashing of windows, but everything ends up mostly in the same place it started.
Any improvement possble?
