I'm new to SAS and I'm trying to use the proc printto to save my log and I can't get it work right.
I'm trying to reformat character fields into dates on a very large dataset (150 million cases) and as it's running the log fills up and I have to choose one of the options on the window to get it started again. I saw another post where someone else had the same issue and I've tried running the proc printto code but it's not working. The log is not being saved and I get that same window popping up when the log gets full.
I'm guessing that I either don't have the code in the right place or order, or maybe I don't even have the right code. I'm using 9.2 on Windows Vista.
I found this first part on the SAS site and 'myfile' was what they had and I'm not sure what it should be so I left it like it was. The file reference 'N:\Cm_files\date.log' is where I want the log saved.
