can I use DOS command to create scheduling of a specified report?

Quartz | Level 8

Hi plkkw,

Not sure what kind of scheduling you want in Web Report Studio which uses a DOS command, however, this is what I've used in the past:

net use s: \\sydfs01\SASdata
net use h: \\sydfs02\shareddata
net use m: \\Sydfs01\SASdata\Sasuserdata\SAS_Output

#allows us to run SAS without having to reference directory
path = "C:\Program Files\SAS\SASFoundation\9.2"

#sas flags used for running jobs in batch
set sas_options = -nosplash -noxwait -noxsync -noterminal -icon

#location of work folders for SAS
set work_path = -work "s:\sasusertemp\"

#sas job shortener
set sj = %%work_path%% %%sas_options%% -sysin

#list of jobs to run
###sas %sj% "H:\Technical\Data\Agencies\Sirius\SAS prog\1. Downloading Sirius"
sas %sj% "H:\Technical\Data\Agencies\Sirius\SAS prog\2. Creating Base"


It was used in conjunction with Windows Scheduler though.
