SAS EG Query Builder Window Shrunk


The Query Builder's window changed on me and I can no longer see all the fields when I drag the variables. The screen shot below shows what happened. How can I restore it to the default?

It's possible the culprit is a corrupt SAS Enterprise Guide user profile. Recreating it usually takes care of the issue. 


To recreate the SAS Enterprise Guide user profile:


  • Close all instances of SAS Enterprise Guide
  • In Windows Explorer go to C:\Users\<your-user-id>\AppData\Roaming\SAS\EnterpriseGuide\
  • Rename the current EG version number folder to X.X_old, where X.X is the version installed (ex. 7.1 to 7.1_old)
  • Restart SAS Enterprise Guide


 A new Enterprise Guide profile directory will be created. If the query builder looks 'normal' again, you can delete the 'X.X_old' directory.
