Hi Mike,

Check this link for creating SP using EG.

https://communities.sas.com/message/127137#127137

From Base SAS if you want to create then you need to use

*ProcessBody;

%stpbegin;

%stpend;

Thanks,

A stored process is a SAS program that:

- is stored in a central location

- is registered in the SAS metadata environment (SAS Folders)

- may contain prompts that allow user input into the program

- can be secured with permissions, allowing only certain people to run it

If that's what you need, then you might want to check out Business Intelligence Notes for more tips.

If you have just a collection of SAS programs that you want to run in batch from your SAS Enterprise Guide environment, check out:
