Viewing and Setting System Options in Enterprise Guide 6.1

Hi,

 

I'm a newbie on Enterprise Guide 6.1, so I'm still finding my way around it.

 

In my code, I'm setting the system options as follows:

 

options mprint symbolgen source2 mlogic serror mcompilenote=all yearcutoff=1980;

 

However, even though I'm using the "mprint" option, when I execute a macro program, the log doesn't show the SAS code generated by macro execution. Somehow, I'm unable to set it. Can you please guide me how to set system options in Enterprise Guide 6.1?

Some options for EG are controlled through the preferences menu.

You're doing it right...

 

When I submit:

 

options mprint symbolgen source2 mlogic serror mcompilenote=all yearcutoff=1980;

%macro p;

proc print data=sashelp.class;

run;

%mend;

%p

 

 

This is the log I get.

 

...

29 %p

MLOGIC(P): Beginning execution.

MPRINT(P): proc print data=sashelp.class;

MPRINT(P): run;

 

...

 

Try submitting the same code, and see what you get. I'm somewhat mystified.

Maybe the macro you are calling is a Stored Compiled Macro using the SECURE option.

 

Or the author of the macro sets the system options back.
