SAS Enterprise Guide: Save autoexec program

I ran the Autoexec scrip and now need to save it.  The instructions state "In the Project Tree, right-click Process Flow and select Rename."  I can't find the Process Flow in the Project Tree and therefore can't right-click it.  Please provide a video or screenshot with arrows or detailed instructions.  Thanks!

 

  1. In the Project Tree, right-click Process Flow and select Rename. Type Autoexec. When you name a process flow Autoexec, SAS Enterprise Guide prompts you to run the process flow when you open the project. This makes it easy to recreate your data when you start practicing in the course.

  2. Select File then New then Process Flow (or click New and select Process Flow). An empty process flow is added to the Project Tree window. You can use this process flow for your work.

  3. Select Tools then Options then Results General. SAS Enterprise Guide submits some code along with the code you submit. To make it easier to see the log messages associated with the code you submit, you can set an option to hide the generated wrapper code. Clear the Show generated wrapper code in SAS log option.

  4. By default, SAS Enterprise Guide creates results in SAS Report format. To more closely match the output shown in this course, select HTML and clear SAS Report in the Result Formats area. Click OK to close the Options window.

  5. Select File then Save Project As (or click Save Project ). Save your project to a location on your local computer. We suggest you use the course code ECPRG193 to name this project.

You're probably mixing up the process flow and the project tree.

 

On the "View" menu, select View | Project Tree. You should then see (probably on the left) a hierarchical display of all of the elements in your project. Right click on "Process Flow" (which is the default flow) and select Rename; follow your instructions from there.
