Hello.
I have the problem with too many windows in sas batch mode.

I use the following command:

 

systask command "START /high ""Batch"" ""C:\Program Files\SAS\SASFoundation\9.2(32-bit)\sas.exe"" 
	 			-batch -nosplash  -sysin ""&CodePatch.______TrRt__0_1_Forse_.sas"" &log ";

so I have too many windows making my job very difficult.

 

Is a way that will eliminate the sas window in all, or everything will work in the background and will not hinder my work

 

I heve sas 9.2. TS Level 2M0 W32_VSPRO Windows 6.2.9200 windows 8.1 pro

 

 

Thank you very much for all your help

Try add -NODMS sas system option to your execution command.

Running batch mode does not open windows.

1) What do you mean by "too many windows" ?

2) What do you mean by "not work" - what are the symptoms?

    Do you get any log file ? you can define a log filename using -ALTLOG system option.

What do you mean by "too many windows" ?

 

 

sas programs run every 5 minutes and at the same time I do something else eg in excel and sas windows come to the foreground (first plan) and they do my work hard

 

What do you mean by "not work" - what are the symptoms?

 

does not change the way sas windows display

 

Do you get any log file ? you can define a log filename using -ALTLOG system option.

%let log = -log ""&CodePatch._log"";

You haven't really described (or screen captured) the content of any of the SAS "Windows". Other options you may be looking for could be -NOSTATUSWIN if the window is shows the name of the SAS job. Or possibly -NOTERMINAL and/or -NOICON options.

I've included yours tips in the following way

systask command "START /high ""Batch"" ""C:\Program Files\SAS\SASFoundation\9.2(32-bit)\sas.exe"" 
	 			-NOSTATUSWIN -NOTERMINAL -NOICON -batch -nosplash -sysin ""&CodePatch.__TrRt_&NrFile._&TF._0_0_DL.sas"" &log "; 

maybe I'm making a mistake here?
