Hi Howard,

Here is one way:

* redirect output window(print) to disk file ; proc printto print='c:\temp\myoutput.txt' new; run;

* output something to output window, ; * is currently repointed to disk file ; proc print data=sashelp.class; run;

* restore default destinations ; proc printto; run;

* read varying length file back in ; data result(keep=theline); length theline $200; infile 'c:\temp\myoutput.txt' length=lenvar; input @1 theline $varying. lenvar; run;

Hope this is helpful.

Hi,

I want to save SAS output (from the output window) as a file, and then read the output file back into SAS (really, send data to someone else, who could read data into SAS.) When one saves SAS output, do you save it to a list file, a DAT file, or other option? Then, given the list or other file, how can you read it into SAS? Fyi, if I just double-click on a list file, the SAS Preview window is activated, but I can't figure out how to open the Preview window otherwise.

Thanks in advance,

Howard Alper
