Stop Datasets from displaying in process flow window?

I'm slightly OCD :smileylaugh: so having all of the datasets generated by my SAS program show up in the process flow window is very annoying.  I have searched and searched and cannot find a way to stop that from happening unless I either 1) set the number of datasets allowed to be displayed option to 0 or 2) use libname _all_ clear.  Option 1 still generates a note object anytime I run a program, which is just as annoying and option 2 doesn't really work either as all of my libraries are auto-assigned by a metadata server and I'd rather not have to re-assign as I often have many programs running in one SAS session and often run programs in parallel.

Does anyone know of an option to stop this from happening?

Thanks!

(tongue in cheek icon)

use base SAS instead of Enterprise Guide

then no process flow window data sets appear (having no process flow)

alternatively

perhaps you can minimize the process flow window

alternatively, use SAS Data Integration Studio - which appears to show less

To : I have the same problem, which also irritates (OCD) me. I just put in a step to delete the intermediate datasets that I don't want, and then only the final datasets appear in the process flow:

proc sql;

drop table lib1.ds1;

drop table lib1.ds2;

quit;
