Depending on the platform your SAS system is installed on, there are numerous methods to schedule actions.

My basic solution is to save the program as .sas file to run in batch mode, test that from the commandline, and then use the UNIX "at" command (if it is to be run once) or the crontab (if it should run regularly).

Windows should have equivalent scheduling options.
