Last proc tabulate in large ods csv file doesn't show on initial csv file

[ Edited ]

I am generating a large number of proc tabulates (30 or so) using ods csv all in SAS 9.4, and the last table doesn't show when I select to open the csv file from the initial prompt. When I try to open this initial file from the file destination - still no last table.

 

I have to manually select the table from Results, click on the csv icon under the table itself, to open another csv file that will have the last table.

 

Is there a way to resolve this so that the last table will appear on the initial run?

 

Thank you.

Can you provide some sample code so we can replicate your issue?

Its likely there's something in that last process that's ending early or an error that's causing it to not generate.

I would not think CSV is a good target output for proc tabulate as spanned rows and or columns make the output potentially extremely difficult to read or interpret.

 

And would get worse with multiple tables in a single file.
