SAS Global Options

I'm wondering how to setup SAS Global options, let's say :

options linesize=80 pagesize=24 ; (etc., etc.)

I don't want to assign in the program every time so I'd like to setup globally and these settings should be available whenever I invoke SAS EG.

Please advise !

Thanks

Doc has already answered the question, but the post should probably have been moved to the Enterprise Guide community.

Paul,

The recent SAS Dummies blog post may have your answer

The process is different from regular sas programming (e.g. autoexec.sas)

Thanks Arthur,

That's work. I was changing in autoexec but EG was not picking up.  So I guess we need to assign options statement in 'Tools' 'options' 'sas programs' 'additional sas code' properties.  So every user has to change this one. Is there a place globally where we can set once and available for all the users always ?

Thanks & appreciated !
