Automatic labels when using wizards

Hi all.
When using eg 4.1 wizards there is a label that gets assigned to the output dataset as in the example below. Is there any way to turn this feature off?

PROC MEANS DATA=WORK.SORTTempTableSorted
FW=12
PRINTALLTYPES
CHARTYPE
NWAY
VARDEF=DF

SUM NONOBS ;

Thanks.
VAR vacancy;
CLASS region / ORDER=UNFORMATTED ASCENDING;
CLASS nhu / ORDER=UNFORMATTED ASCENDING;

OUTPUT OUT=WORK.STOCKSMRY(LABEL="Summary Statistics for WORK.MANAGEDSTOCK")

SUM()=

/ AUTONAME AUTOLABEL WAYS INHERIT
;
RUN;

No, there isn't a way to turn off this data set label. I suppose you can always remove it with a PROC DATASETS step if it's in your way.

[pre]
proc datasets lib=work nolist ;
modify stocksmry(label="");
run;
[/pre]

Thanks Chris.

I had previously inserted code to do this but you have to manually add the data to the designer window and then link to the summary statistics, (or whatever object you are using), object.

I was hoping eg would do this for me, (I'm being lazy), but looks ike it won't so I will continue to do this.
