How to view datasets in Enterprise Guide when working interactively

I am transitioning from Base SAS to Enterprise Guide and am trying to figure out how to maintain my interactive workflow.  In Base SAS, I will typically run code line by line while I am testing to so that I can carefully watch the log.  I have figured out how to do this using the project log in EG, but I am running into an issue with finding datasets after I run another step.  For example, consider the following nonsensical code:

 

data test;
infile datalines delimiter=',';
input var1 $ var2 ;
datalines;
a , 1
b, 2
c,3
;

 

%put hello world;

 

data test2;
set test;
if var2=1 then var2=4;
run;

 

When I run the first data step, 'test' is created and I can see it in the process flow.  Then, when I run the put statement, the dataset 'test' disappears from the process flow. Where did it go? How do I see my working directory?  When I run the second data step, 'test2' is successfully created.  Therefore, the dataset 'test' must still exist as it is being used to create 'test2', but I don't see it in the process flow to view it.  How do I view datasets after running additional lines of code?

You can set EG to automatically add results to the process flow (Tools - Options - Results)

 

To see datasets in your WORK, navigate to SASApp - Libraries - WORK in the server list.

No problem. Getting used to the peculiarities of user interfaces takes its time.
