Windows is full and must be cleared.

Hi,

I presume there is too much to be printed in the output window. SAS says:

Windows is full and must be cleared. Select:

F to file

P to print

S to save or

C to clear the window without saving.

I have to manually click C again and again. Oh dear!

Is there any way to cancel the window?Smiley Sad

If you don't want the output turn off the listing.

*Closes output window;

ods listing close;

Change your ODS destination so data goes somewhere else:

ods listing close;

ods html file='C:\temp';

OR

If its the log use the google printto log sas.

Take a look at: http://support.sas.com/kb/5/888.html

It shows how to interrupt the message and offers a number of options for rerouting the log, output, etc.

Just to make sure that two siginificant possibilties from that link aren't lost by my just mentioning the link: (1) as of SAS9.2 one can increase the allowable size of their log by specifying DMSLOGSIZE in their autoexec file and (2) one can always reroute their log to a file that doesn't have any limitation other than one's available hard drive storage space.
