Hi Abc Unha,

Yes, you can repoint work datasets to go to disk if you prefer:

libname mylib 'c:\temp';

* create a permanent dataset to disk ; data mylib.abc; a='permanent dataset to target lib'; run;

* create a temporary dataset ; data def; a='temporary dataset to work space'; run;

* globally re-point datasets that ; * do not have a libref. specified ; * to a permanent folder location. ; option user=mylib; * repoint non-libref-datasets to permanent disk ; data xyz; a='permanent dataset to target lib without libref.'; run;

option user=work; * repoint WORK to back to temp when done;

Hope this is helpful.

I am running SAS in batch mode. It has hundreds of dataset that is writing into work directory. At the end it creates one dataset that will be written in permanent libaray. I need to debug some steps and I was wondering If there is a way to permanently store work datasets?
