SAS code not saving

I've started using SAS  University Edition and the code I'm saving to a library on computer is not actually saving (though it says it is and the date/time the code shows being saved is correct). When I open a new session, sometimes it will just show an older version of the code and sometimes it will have saved only part of the code. Today, for example, I opened up a file that said it had saved. Instead of finding several hundred lines of code, I only found 3 lines of one proc!

 

The VMware player that I use is open the whole time. I do sometimes lock and leave my computer in the middle of coding, then come back and continue working. Could this be it?

 

How can I make sure the code I work on actually saves?

Thank you!

Re: SAS code not saving

Interesting...I would try a different browser. A worse case scenario would be copying the code over to a text file editor and saving in there as a .txt or even a .sas file from there. SAS code files are simply text files.

On the other hand, I've had issues pasting code into SAS UE so that may not help Smiley Sad

Re: SAS code not saving

Seems to have worked! I'm copy/pasting the code into a test file just to be sure, but so far so good. Thank you!!
