Re: Automating SAS Job

Hi, Manesh

 

You may have a few concepts mixed up. SAS programs always run on the SAS software; when it's a machine separate from your workstation, that's referred to as a SAS server. Your client probably wants you to run your software on the server, without using Enterprise Guide.

 

To do this, create a file of the SAS code that's in your project. You can use the "Export All Code In Project..." task to do this. Once you have a single piece of code, talk to your SAS administrator about where it should be saved on the server, and what software your organization uses to schedule jobs. You can then set up the schedule with that product.

Windows-scheduler could be sufficient. Link: http://www2.sas.com/proceedings/sugi27/p276-27.pdf
