With SAS Studio you have the ability to create flow through Visual Programming perspective.
Is there a way to schedule the run of a flow?
I use SAS Studio 3.5 Enterprise.

If your SAS workspace server resides on a remote host, I'd rather save the flow to one SAS program file (.sas) and have that executed in batch mode on the server, using your organization's preferred scheduler.

How can you save your .CPF file (SAS Studio Flow) to SAS program?
Except going in each boxes of your flow and do copy/paste or do some include of all programs located in the flow in order to build a big SAS program.
Not sure that flows you can create with visual programming are ready to be batch or schedule easily, but maybe I missed something

I can't speak for SAS Studio, as I haven't yet used it, but Enterprise Guide provides a menu choice to export a whole process flow as SAS code.
So I suspect SAS Studio should have a similar option.
The reason why I suggested this is that to run a Studio project flow, you need the Studio engine to interpret it. With SAS code in a .sas file, you just need SAS Foundation. Aside from the fact that a .sas file is simple text and can be viewed/manipulated with any text editor.
