Subject:      Re: Change Browse Default to Column Names


The table browser is called ViewTable. When ViewTable is open, click on the help icon, the second from the bottom help link is "VIEWTABLE command reference". You can assign any of the commands to a key. Your command is COLNAMES or just NAMES.

The Explore 'Open' action on a table is located in the SAS registry at path Core/Explorer/Menus/Members/Table in key "1;&Open". This keys value by default should be VIEWTABLE %8b.'%s'.DATA Edit the value to be VIEWTABLE %8b.'%s'.DATA;COLNAMES

Then, whenever "Open" action is done, VIEWTABLE will open the file you requested and issue the COLNAMES command to switch the column label mode to column names.
