Is it possible to not open the file in a PDF window using ODS PDF?

 

Looking for a SAS ODS PDF option similar to the VBA option of "OpenAfterPublish:=False" when creating a PDF.

 

I'm planning to create ~60 PDF files in a macro loop and don't want to open all of them.

 

Thanks in advance.

There's a SAS option to Turn off results as generated so the files don't open automatically. This applies to all types though. 


Depending on what version of SAS you're using the location of the option can vary a little. 

Assuming BASE SAS it's under Tools>Options>Preferences>Results -> View results as they are generated
