get the filename of SAS graph output

Hi all,

I'd like to use SAS/Graph output files produced by Proc Ghart (gif, jpeg etc)
The problem is SAS/Graph increment a name of graph output file for next execution (gchart1.gif, gchart2.gif,...)

when i run my sas code in EG i see such info in a log

RECORDS WRITTEN TO E:\WH_Data\SAS Temporary Files\_TD6108\Prc2\gchart5.gif

how can get filename/fileref to this file for specific execution of code?

Re: get the filename of SAS graph output

I don't use EG but but the GOPTION GOUTMODE=REPLACE might help. Be aware that you need to be a bit explicit in naming your output with this mode as all GCHART output will default to the same name "gchart" and overwrite the last output.
