Annoying problem -EG stored process outputs 'non-outputting' summary tables

The project has summary tables for manipulating data (set to output only dataset), then queries, then summary tables to display, in that order. The stored process created from the project displays output from both the first set of summary tables task and the second set, very fraustrating, can't see any reason why?

Re: Annoying problem -EG stored process outputs 'non-outputting' summary tables

If the data tables are created in the course of running the stored process, EG will try to display those tables in your project.

If you don't want one of the tables (for example, it's an intermediate result that you don't need to display), add a PROC DATASETS step to delete the extra table at the end of the stored process code. That way, EG won't detect it and attempt to show it within your project.

Hi,

Tried this and it doesn't work. Tried a proc datasets at the end of the code and as close to the offending proc tabulate as I can, there is no effect.

Thanks

P

proc datasets library = work;
delete TABLE1 TABLE2 TABLE3;
quit;
