Suppressing output written to log window from procedures

Hi,

I have a task, that uses proc nlin up to 10000 times (wrapped in a by statement). I think I remember from PC SAS days, that I could turn off ALL output from proc nlin (and other procs), but in EG (6.1) I do not seem to be able to find the option to do so. It has the consequnce, that when I click on the log tab, the log is so big, that it seriously slows down opening it, and in cases it has crashed EG (or I ended it myself).

Anyone remembers/knows how to turn off EVERYTHING from proc nlin?

Regards

Poul
