The SAS log: proc printto and options

I'm comparing SAS Logs.

I have 2 questions:


1: While using proc printto, is it possible to keep the log for viewing? (so if error i can rerun, else the outputted log is ok).

2: For having a clean log (without the number in front), what can you use?  I'm using a program to compare both output but it points out every row as the number in front is always different..


THanks!

Answer to #1

proc printto log="filename.log" new; run;

Answer to #2

I don't know if this is possible, I hope someone else knows.

Oh, that wasn't clear from your original statement.

I don't think you can use PROC PRINTTO and still have the log appear in the log window. You can, however, open the .log file into the enhanced editor or program editor.
