How to delete .spds9 extension file from SAS ?

Hi,

 

I am using "Scalable Performance Data Engine" technique for performance improvement.

During program execution it creates lots of .spds9 extension file in physical library.

 

I want to delete those files at the end of the program execution. But SAS is not able to recognize it.

 

I have used PROC Datasets and Unix (x command). But nothing is working.

 

I also checked the library structure using Proc Contents. In Proc Contents, it shows library is empty.

 

How to make SAS to recongnize .spds9 files?

 

Regards

Nikunj

Hi,

I have got the solution.

All the .spds9 files created by SPDE during processing are linked to SAS Datasets created by program.

So, this time I tried to delete the SAS datasets. On deleting the SAS dataset it will automatically remove all the .spds9 files linked to that dataset.

Thank you all for your inputs.

Regards,
Nikunj
