SUDAAN noprint option - eliminate headers


Not sure this is the place for a SUDAAN question - if there's a SUDAAN community like this great SAS one, just let me know.

I'm using the NOPRINT option with PROC DESCRIPT - but the SUDAAN header, number of OBS, etc still prints.  The tables are not printing - but I'd like to leave the output screen blank after running the PROC.

This is what I'd like to eliminate.  Turning off the ODS listing didn't work.

SUDAAN noprint option - eliminate headers

If you cannot get it any other way then direct the print out to another file.

For example:

filename sudaan temp;

proc printto print=sudaan ; run;

proc sudaan ....


proc printto print=print; run;

Thanks.  I did confirm with RTI (owner of SUDAAN) there is no way to avoid printing the header, FYI.
