is there way to view in EG the status of a SAS job submitted to the Grid ? the local log and output window are not returned/displayed. one can't tell if job completed or not or if errors encountered.

The SAS log should actually return any errors/warnings and even tell you on which node in the Grid. What version of SAS EG are you running?

thanks all for you replies.
just wondering why my SAS code submitted to the Grid does not return anything either the log or output. something to do with our SAS setup ? SAS tutorial using EG shows log results displayed after code submitted to the Grid. hope someone can explain what's going on.

You might actually have the option turned off inside the EG options.
Try this and let me know if you get your SAS log:
Open SAS Enterprise Guide > go to Tools > Options > Results > Results General > make sure the option "Show generated wrapper code" is checked.

My settings are fine.
I may have misstated about LOG part. I got something in the log:
NOTE: Remote signon to GRID1 complete.
35 rsubmit grid1 persist=no;
5 The SAS System 12:44 Friday, November 17, 2017
NOTE: Background remote submit to GRID1 in progress.
However, query results were not returned back to EG.
Here is SAS code (copied from SAS tutorial) submitted:
%let jnvar = lte_2017c;
%let rc=%sysfunc(GRDSVC_ENABLE(_ALL_,SERVER=SASApp; jobname=jnvar));
signon grid1 connectwait=no;
rsubmit grid1 persist=no ;
MY SAS CODE
And that's it.

I don't think sas EG is the best tool for that. However, there are tools out there that will help with that question and many others (as performance, monitoring, killing sessions, etc). My favourite is the Enterprise Session Monitor (aka ESM provided by Boemska.
You can find more information at
And I am sure @boemskats can provide you more information.
Hope it helps.
