DATA _NULL_ reports

I am trying to migrate a site that has a number of HTML pages that they create with DATA _NULL_ steps. When run in the Stored Process Server via the Web Mid-Tier app, they just use the _webout fileref. They would like to run these same reports in EG. But it does not appear that EG supports the _webout fileref.

Is there a facility that will allow for a Stored Process when run from EG to have content to be written to the HTML destination via PUT statements in a DATA step?

Don:
I don't -think- so. The _webout and DATA _NULL issue was documented or in a note someplace, I think it was here and someplace else:

(but I can't find the someplace else...)

Re: DATA _NULL_ reports

We have stored processes that use data _null_ and file _webout that work in both EG and on our web tier. I believe %STPBEGIN is what caused the problems, because none of our stored processes which operate in this manner use %STPBEGIN and %STPEND or *ProcessBody statements. I know this practice is not necessarily recommended by SAS. Smiley Happy
