Calcite | Level 5
Hi there,

I have a probably rather simple question concerning SAS EG 4.2

Some of my projects consist of quite a lot different SAS code objects, which all produce some output - mainly SAS data sets - which are used by subsequent routines.
However, most of the data sets which are generated during the job are not needed any more afterwards.

Is there a way to remove those unnecessary data sets from the process flow (other than deleting them manually after the job is finished), so that it does not look so crowded any more?

I would appreciate any help.

Best regards,

Hi Barry,

thanks for your answer.
Unfortunately this is exactly what I cannot do, since the data sets are used by subsequent routines.
If I delete them at the end of the complete process flow, when they really are not needed any more, then the datasets are gone, but their icons are still displayed and just give an error message if you try to open them...

Best regards,
