Re: DI - stop a flow when i have an error in a transformation

When you say DI, you mean when you are actually running inte DI Studio GUI?

When executing om the WorksSpace server, there is no interaction between DIS and the server session, DIS is responsible for generating the current SAS code based on metadata, and then submit that code to the server.

So no, DIS itself cannot stop after an error.

What you can play with are global SAS options that handle how the SAS session should respond to error events. I think the default is that after a syntax error, SAS will set obs=0, and then just syntax check the rest of the code.

Question is, why do you want to stop execution when working in DIS? I can't say that I ever had that need.

Hi,

Return code check transformation could do something for you specially when setting the action with error but not specially to stop DIS if error occurs.

why are you looking for it ?
