Show only one specific output in SAS EG Result -SAS Report window

Dear friends.

When I am running  SAS EG( v 9.4) programs,  the output in  Result- SAS report window appear to be rather confusing , since it shows a lot of different  tabels witch are not importend for the users. I need to show only one table in that window, but I can't finde the right way to do so. I have been searching on the Communities, but perhaps I was searching on the wrong branch since I did not find anything useful.

What can I don't want to show the to first reports , but only the last one ?

 

 Let say that I run the two  following  proc steps  and I only want to show  table for the last proc step ? 

proc contents data= sashelp.CITIDAY; run;

proc print data= sashelp.class; run;

 

Can anyone help me with that problem please ?

Procedures that produce output usually have an option to suppress it, eg

proc contents data=sashelp.class out=test noprint;
run;

See the documentation for a given procedure to dteremine how to get rid of unwanted output.

If a procedure step is written that it only produces visual output (no out=dataset or similar defined), then comment that step with /* */, as it is not needed anyway.

Hi Kurt.

Thanks . If there is no other solution , I vil do as you say. However my SAS program is rather complicated and use macro's witch runs another macros, therefor I was thinking about applying somehow Dm clear "output". The problem is , that it 's not working as I want it to.

Best regards !
