When multiple data steps / sorts are run at one time in SAS EG, it would be great if the default table displayed in the "Output Data" tab was the last one run. Sometimes I run programs that create intermediate data sets that are used to produce the final data set. When I click on the "Output Data" tab, 99% of the time I would like for the final data set to be displayed as the default. And because I work with large datasets (millions of records), I have to wait each time I click for a new data table for it to load. Seems like a small issue, but if this could be done, it would increase my day's efficiency and decrease my waiting time frustration.
Thanks for letting us make suggestions!!!

I'm in a similar situation in that I work with many large datasets. My solution is to set the number of datasets to open to 0. This means nothing gets written to the Output tab, but I can just open the one dataset I want from the Server List. I find this works efficiently for me

We are going to try to handle this a little better in a future EG release by being a little more conservative about opening data -- or least providing one or more options to allow users to choose between the convenience versus the performance of automatically opening data.
