ods trace off; at the top of the program should suffice for the trace option.

I think having datasets created elsewhere will involve manual code changes . . a libname statement and renaming all the data file code.

ie libname datafile 'G:\SASfiles'; data datafile.filename; set oldfile, etc. . ..

will save the "filename" data to your G drive.
