Fluorite | Level 6


We have an Script wich Generates a pdf file. It work perfectly in SAS Guide but when we schedule it to be run trough Putty we get this prompt question:

No device name has been given--please enter device name:

How we can avoid this prompt?

Thx in advance!!

Fluorite | Level 6

Well, we already solve it.

The problem was simplier than we tought. We had a pdf file which is made with GReplay of various small graphs created with proc GSlide.

We defined correctly device = pdf for GReplay but we didnt define device for GSlide, so we put device=png at the beginning and it solves the problem.
