Thank you,

Is that possible just change the color and not put the keywords :NOTE or ERROE or WARNING in the log?

Thanks!

I don't know.  If you use - instead of : as in my example the word is omitted but not the space.

You can change the colors in the log using the DM command.

in a program you can use to set the colors for the ERROR: WARNING: text.

colors accepted are red black white gray yellow cyan magenta or those colors and reverse (which makes the stated color the background and the text the background color.

the WSAVE will save the current settings across SAS sessions.

dm 'log; color error red; color warning yellow; wsave;'

Thank you!

except error, warning and note, is there any other options?

If we use dm statement for change color of NOTE ,we will change every NOTEs' color in the log,

Is that possible we just change one Note's color in the log and keep other notes' color as their original?

Thanks

Or, you can simply do something like:

log "color warning green reverse" continue;

log "color error red reverse" continue;
