Store Directory Path as variable

Hi Forum,

 

I need to see where a directory path is stored as a variable.

 

I have inherited an EG Project that uses a variable to define part of a directory path.

 

The path is used to save files & retrieve to attach to emails.

 

Problem is I cannot find where the variable has been set..

 

There's no %Let or Symput statement or anything stored under Tools >> Options >> SAS Programs.

 

Where else can a variable be setup in EG (7.1) for use in a Program?

 

I've contacted my support & they advised it is coded on my side (in the Project somewhere)

 

Thanks for your help.

Autoecec (server)
Automatic code in E.G.
Referenced programs
Generated from SAS program (call symput, can be dynamic)
Etc
This calls for program/project documentation...
Data never sleeps

The most likely candidate would be the autoexec file - try checking that
