ODS LISTING: WARNING: No output destinations active.

Dear SAS Community,

 

I am trying to get my output to print to the listing window instead of HTML.  I am using SAS 9.4 and I have set my preferences to revert back to the SAS 9.2 way of display (under Tools/Preferences uncheck "Create HTML", uncheck "Use ODS Graphics" and check "Create Listing".  Whenever I run a proc I get the "WARNING: No output destinations active." and no output anywhere.

When I run

 

ODS LISTING;
ODS LISTING SHOW;
Proc Means data=sashelp.class;run;

 

I get this output:

1587  ODS LISTING;
1588  ODS LISTING SHOW;
Current LISTING select list is set to default value (ALL).
Current OVERALL select list is: ALL
1589  Proc Means data=sashelp.class;run;

WARNING: No output destinations active.

 

How can I open output destinations?  I thought "PROC LISTING;" was supposed to do that.

 

Thanks,
Eric

If you run the following what do you get?

 

ods listing;

ods results;

proc means data=sashelp.class;

run;

1590  ods listing;
1591  ods results;
1592  proc means data=sashelp.class;
1593  run;

WARNING: No output destinations active.

NOTE: There were 19 observations read from the data set SASHELP.CLASS.
NOTE: The PROCEDURE MEANS printed page 27.

Are you using SAS University Edition? Or SAS on the Amazon AWS? Just curious.

Nope, SAS Release 9.04.01M3P062415 on WS32_7PRO

Re: ODS LISTING: WARNING: No output destinations active.

So, it turns out Reeza's solution was mostly correct.  I do a lot of remote submits to an external server, so I had to do both:

 

ods listing;

ods results;

 

*AND*

 

rsubmit;

ods listing;

ods results;

 

to gt the proc means statement to run.

proc means data=sashelp.class;

run;

 

I wish SAS hadn't changed the ODS output settings in 9.4, they've caused me nothing but trouble.
