Subject: Suggest NOovp option default (was Re: w.r.t. put problem)
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=iso-8859-1
A rule many of us follow is that we don't vote for a ballot item if the effect can be accomplished easily already. We'd rather have SAS Institute devote its efforts to adding new features (such as the ability to specify the logical order of variables in a data set using a data set option) or fixing broken existing features (such as the regular expression functions).
Since you can make NOOVP the default for your installation by adding a line to the configuration file, I wouldn't rank this suggestion high on my list.
Something I'd rather have is the ability to make the MISSING option the default in all procedures which accept it (summary, means, freq, report, tabulate, and probably others). Failure to specify the MISSING option is a common cause of subtle errors, and I've never worked anywhere where "throw away data without warning" is a desirable default.

Since the days of impact printers seem to be well behind us,
(and at least your ears want to thank goodness),
how can we persuade SI to make the delivered default for
this OVP option to be
not even the mainframe people want this ( they are using laser printers these days)
I guess this is what the sasware ballot is for....
Please vote for NOovp in the next ballot
please make the default for the ovp system option NO

Only if you have turned off the overprint option. Try specifying
options noovp ;
And you should only get the error printed once.
