Re: Listing files

Where do you want to direct your SAS-generated output? You can use PROC PRINTTO or ODS LISTING if you want to re-direct your output to an alternate file allocated with FILENAME.

Re: Listing files

If you have SAS code that is generating unneeded reports but you do not want to remove the code that is generating the reports, you can use:

ODS LISTING CLOSE;

Your listing file will be empty.
