Did you know that SAS Studio has a special mode for programmers who use interactive procedures? An interactive procedure in SAS enables you to submit multiple statements without exiting the procedure. Interactive procedures include PROC SQL, PROC DATASETS, and statistical procedures such as PROC REG and PROC GLM.
Click the "Go interactive" icon to put SAS Studio into interactive mode. See the article "Running interactive procedures in SAS Studio and SAS University Edition" for a step-by-step explanation, including how to get SAS Studio to default to interactive mode.

Great info! There are many folks who prefer to work in this type of mode. I'd encourage anyone experimenting with interactive mode to read through the Working in Interactive Mode section of the SAS Studio User's Guide to understand the differences in how it works versus the default mode for SAS Studio. Of particular interest is how your temporary data (WORK library, options, macro vars, etc.) are handled.
