Doesn't the filename to 'mdir' just pick up the Windows 'start in' directory, which must be your sas\intrnet\ ? ---------------------- Forwarded by Richard Cook/LONDON/Prudential on 03/18/99 12:42 PM ---------------------------

Again - directory from which program has been run

Whoops. Complications now that I've moved the chunk of code to the web server. It worked fine on my PC but appears to pick up the wrong directory on the server.

Rather than picking up the directory where the program lives, it's picking up the \sas\intrnet\ directory. I thought I might find the broker.exe file in this directory ( the CGI script actually executing the SAS program ), but I didn't. The only executables or SAS system programs in this directory are: permdata, reset and srvauto.

Any idea why it's picking up the wrong directory?

The code I'm using is:

%global mylog current;

%let rc=%sysfunc(filename(mydir,.)); %let current=%sysfunc(pathname(&mydir));

data _null_; x=trim("&current")||"\log\log.txt"; call symput('mylog',x); run;

filename mylog "&mylog"; proc printto log=mylog new; run;
