Subject:      Re: can DOS wait for windows sas???

If the programs need to be executed sequentially, you can set up a SAS program that %INCLUDEs them in the proper sequence. For example, the following program is in a file LOTSAPROGRAMS.SAS:

options source2; %include 'full path to program file number one\'; %include 'full path to program file number two\'; . . . etc.

The source2 on the options statement is there so that the log(s) from the various programs will include the source statements - If you don't need to see the code in the log and are content with just the messages that come out after each step, leave it out.

The whole thing can be run either in batch or interactive mode. To run in batch, RIGHT click on LOTSAPROGRAMS.SAS (in windows explorer) and choose the batch submit option, or run it from the start/run dialog on the task bar. To run interactively, open LOTSAPROGRAMS.SAS in the editor window and submit.
