Auto update libraries

I use Enterprise Guide for writing and running SAS programs.  I create lots of data sets from my programs and many times they are in the Work library.  After I run my code the new data sets do not show up in the Servers pane: Servers->SASApp->Libraries->Work (or other library).  I have to manually click refresh in that window.  Is there an option I can change to make the new data sets show up under the library when they are created by my code?

Re: Auto update libraries

 At least up to EG 6.1, there is no such option.

Refreshing the contents of libraries is a rather time-consuming action, so I guess this is the reason why EG does not do it automatically and why there is no such option.
