HI Pinky,

Are you looking for some procedure in sas which can help you stop executing your program. I am not sure if we have anything like that in SAS.

But in UNIX you can use ctrl ZZ command to stop executing your program in middle.

Re: Stop executing the SAS program

The stop option button in Eguide is only working when the process behind is responding.

There is also a taksmanger window in Eguide so you can follow the processes starting en stopping

When the Unix process behind and Eguide lost their connection and the Unix proces is still running or looping the only way it:

- login in Unix in the back hole approach

- kill the process by its prosee-number in a normal decent way.

- If that also fails kill it in the indecent way having the risk of corrupting datasets being processed on.

Hopeful you have sufficient Unix skills and autorisations to do this.
