Analyze SAS Program in Syntax Check Mode?

I've recently inherited a process.

 

I'm trying to use the "Analyze Program" function in EG 7.11 to create a process flow from a program. When the function runs, it appears to be doing a complete run of the program, which takes a long time, and the data content is riddled with issues. 

 

Is there a way to run this function in Syntax Check Mode, where (obs=0) for every table in the program without hardcoding? Or, some other way to produce a process flow that I can troubleshoot in small chunks, instead of trying to tackle this monster head-on?

Option obs=0;

This would set obs=0 to every step. However if you have a sort on a table without a rename it could erase your dataset.

For reference.

 

Options obs=0 caused a disconnection from grid environment when included in the program being analyzed. Running it in a separate program ran smoothly.
