Currently I have several programs and queries in my project that have to run in a specific order.  If I just click "run project" EG will run in an order that doesn't allow the project to complete properly, as a result I need to go back and rerun certain parts.  Is there a way to specify what order programs and queries run?  I've tried the "link to" functionality but that didnt seem to work.  Any help would be appreciated.


For what its worth, my project is a combination of SQL pass through code and SAS EG query builders.  I am also pulling data into my project that resides on different servers and is being joined via query builders.

Thanks...I wasn't aware of this function. Worked great.

You can link your task and program nodes together to enforce a sequence.  Right-click on any node, select Link... and then select the next node to link it to.  By adding a link, say from "Program A" to "Query B", you are guaranteed that EG will wait for "Program A" to complete before starting "Query B".




In the above example, "create_ratings_data" and "Ratings Format" will run before "Calc Days and Ratings" -- good thing, because in that query node I reference the format that was defined in "Ratings Format".


You can add as many user-defined links as you need within a process flow.


If you need to run tasks from different flows in a defined sequence, then use the Ordered List as @Reeza suggested.
