SAS Excel Addin

i have a SAS stored process program which runs fine but the problem is when I run it directly through SAS then it takes less time as compared to when it is run through VBA using Excel Add in.

 

Any speific reason for that..??

Is SAS on the server?

Are the results being displayed in Excel as well?

Then likely the download time needs to be added. You're seeing the results but I bet it's the transfer to Excel(local computer) that takes the time. You can add some timers and check where the difference in time for your process occurs.

How can I stop the transfer of results so that some of the time taken is saved

If you don't need all the results, then why are you outputting them? Add a prompt to control what outputs are created.

I want the output to be created for other purpose but dont want them to be displayed in excel.

I have even untick the option of Automatic output in the tools option in SAS Excel Add in
