Unless you're running all this through SAS/IntrNet, you probably don't
have a SAS problem here. (Not that SAS isn't part of the problem, but
fixing the problem will be non-SAS.) If you're running everything
through SAS/IntrNet, then you need to modify your code so that the
Application Dispatcher checks whether the job succeeded, and directs
the user to the appropriate error page.
If you're NOT using SAS/IntrNet, then you need to do the same re-direct
yourself, in whatever language you're using for your web process. You
should also think about preparing this re-direct for any SAS job which
might run long enough to cause a time-out. You may evne want to start
out with a webpage that says something like "Please wait while we
your SAS request." Then, if the job runs, you re-direct to a webpage
with the output. and, if the job bombs, then you re-direct to a webpage
with the error message.
