Hi,

When I use:

data _null_;

call execute('dm wedit''keydef "F12" clear log; clear output;'' wedit;');

run;

to create a new function associated with the key 'F12' I get only 'clear log' on the key command.  How do I get 'clear log; clear output;' onto the key menu though code?

Thanks,

Connie

Don't need the data step since DM is a global command you can execute anywhere.

Syntax is almost there, just need the desired command inside quotes.

This should do it:

dm ' keydef F12 "clear log; clear output;"  ';
