I have two follow-up comments/questions here. I realize this post was made about 7 years ago, but I hope you can still help me here.
1. When I go into edit the templates, after typing "odst", the path is under Sashelp.Tmplstat, not Tmplmst. Is this correct?
2. After finding the template I need to edit, when I right click, I do not have the option to edit it, I only have the option to open it. When I open the template, I does not let me edit it directly in that environment. Any idea why this may be happening?
I am using SAS version 9.4.
1. Yes, the templates are now divided across different item stores based on product. SASHELP.TMPLSTAT should be the correct one for your case.
2. The best thing to do is to copy the template to your program editor, make your changes, and submit the code like any other program. By default, your modified template should be written to SASUSER.TEMPLAT. Normally, this location is searched first for templates before SASHELP (unless you have modified ODS PATH). Therefore, when you run your proc, you should see your changes.
Hope this helps!
