Subject: Running SAS programs automatically on a periodic basis?
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1
Hello! I have a simple SAS program that I run every few days (it
imports an Excel file and converts it into a fixed-length text file).
It doesn't take long at all to run the program, but I was wondering if
there was a way to have the program run automatically without me
having to open the program and manually click 'Run'? Is it possible
the program could be run automatically on a periodic basis (e.g.,
every day at a specified time)? Would the SAS application have to be
left open to accomplish this? Thanks for any advice...
