You've already received one suggestion regarding SYSTASK which should
work for you. An alternative, if you have SAS/CONNECT installed, is to
use the MP CONNECT feature. Cheryl Doninger of SAS Institute has
written Multiprocessing with Version 8 of the SAS System. You can read
about it at:

Does anybody have the experience of executing another sas program in
a separate process within a batch sas program? It seems that there
be some differences between windows and unix environment, I need both
I'd like to explain it in more detail. Now I have a SAS application
which is called by SAS application server. Once the application
has been invoked, I'd like the program to execute another SAS program,
which should be executed in a separate process. Both SAS programs run
respective processes and will end up respectively. In my situation,
latter invoked SAS program will normally run in a longer time.
I tried to use X, dm, %execute, etc. But all failed in the end.
could show me the rope?
Thanks very much in advance for any insights.
