Does your code generate any output?

Listings are only generated if ODS LISTING is active. Do you run your code from EG?

I am running code on SAS 9.3 windows.

My ODS listing is off, but earlier it used to route the LST in LST file, but not now.

Please can you send the code so that i can ttry again.
