execute code (a program) automatically when EG closes

Can one execute code (a program) automatically when EG closes ?

In a similar way that  autoexec executes when EG opens ?

Re: execute code (a program) automatically when EG closes

Implicit in your requirement is the need to have an open SAS server connection when you close EG. This may not always be the case.

I suggest you research the TERMSTMT = SAS option as a way of running code when closing a SAS server connection in EG. This statement could be a %INCLUDE statement to run a complete program. 

There is no way I am aware of for EG itself to trigger a program on closing itself. A server-side solution like TERMSTMT is the only option I can think of.
