Re: SAS ETL studio
Ankit, It's unclear to me what you want to do with the existing macros and the calling them from ETL Studio. But a few things come to mind. 1. ETL Studio jobs which are to be run in production must be deployed. Deployment directories are defined in Management Console and associated with a SAS Batch Server. When a job is deployed, ETL Studio generates a static SAS program in the deployment directory. Until the job is deployed the job only exists in metadata. 2. Macros can be called by User Written Code transformations that you place in the job, in the pre- and post-process steps for the job, and by writing your own code for a SAS-supplied transformation (e.g. Extract, Join, Sort). My suggestion would be to control the fmtsearch option so that the macros can be autocalled or you can %include the macro files. This allows you to modify the macro without having to redeploy the job. 3. Look at the status handling for a transformation or the job to maintain the history you are talking about. You can use one of the pre-built actions or use Custom, which can call a macro. Remember that you can have several checks in status handling and thus handle multiple situations. Since some of these capabilities are pretty basic, see #4. 4. You can write your own SAS code transformation to record the update information you want and place it immediately after a data set in the job. I've used SAS Code Transformations quite often to good effect, both to handle job-specific issues (e.g. ...

Re: Running SAS jobs sequentially in batch mode
Create a new "master" program, and %include all the production jobs in sequence. Note that unless you clean up work datasets and any macro variables created by each production job, subsequent jobs will not be starting in a pristine environment.

I have never seen this.. except when the programs are being run from the Display Manager instead of as batch jobs. Could that be the problem?

how to add fonts to the sas registry (was RE: Re: sas/graph:
