Depends on, which window is full. Is it the Log window, you can try to avoid
too much output with some options. E.g. you should set all macro options to
no: nomprint nosymbolgen nomlogic. If you have still too much, nonotes could
A better way might be
proc printto log="file_for_log.log"; run;
If it is the output window, you could use ODS to bring your output to a
file, or also PROC PRINTTO with PRINT=
So you can look for error messages and warnings in that file.
