"The results are large.." EG warning prompt

I have some code that I have scheduled to run, which fails because of a warning prompt. My code that I'm running is taking 4 query results and creating a formatted excel workbook with 4 worksheets on it, one for each query.

"The results are large (8426192 bytes) and could take a long time and a large amount of system resources to add to the project.

Do you want to continue adding the results to the project?"

Is there any code I can call out at the beginning of my string to turn off/suspend these warnings?

Re: "The results are large.." EG warning prompt

This is happening when running a scheduled job? That sounds like a defect in the product. I suggest that you report it to SAS technical support and we'll take a closer look at it.

In the meantime, you might be able to work around it by bumping up the number in Tools->Options->Results General: "Prompt before opening results larger than..."

The default is 5MB. Try changing it to 10 for the example you mentioned.

Your fix worked perfectly. The end result of my process creates a multi-sheet excel file which is about 6MB. I made the change you suggested, and everything is working fine. Thanks.
