sas >> Changing default view for Explorer window in SAS 9.2

by KLR » Thu, 01 Jul 2010 23:14:21 GMT

At present, each time I open a session of SAS I need to manually
select 'Use treet view' and change to List view. Does anyone know how
I can set the properties so that these settings are retained when I
exit SAS?

Many thanks.

Go to menu: Tools -> Options -> Preferences... -> General
Do you see "Save settings on exit" checked? If so, it should remember
your setting next time
you start SAS.

If Ya's suggestion doesn't work, you could try arranging your session
windows the way you'd like, then go to the command line or command bar and
issue WSAVE ALL

Thanks guys - neither solution works. It just resets itself back to
default settings each time I open a new session. Can I add something
to my autoexec to get round it?

If you only have read access to your SASUSER library then SAS will use
a profile in the WORK directory and so your changes will get lost.
Check to top of you SAS log to see if SAS said that it was using
WORK.PROFILE.

Personally I have the -RSASUSER option in my SAS configuration file so
that my multiple sessions all get READ access to my normal profile.
If I want to make a change to it the I start SAS with the -NORSASUSER
option and I can make changes.

This came up a couple of years ago. Here's a copy of the post that 
corrected it for me:

To change the default, when browsing SAS tables, to display column names 
instead of column labels:

1 - Type Regedit in the command box and press return
2 - click on: CORE --> EXPLORER --> MENUS --> MEMBERS --> TABLE
3 - double click on the line which reads "1;&Open"
4 - append ';COLNAMES' to the line which reads: VIEWTABLE %8b.'%s'.DATA 
giving: VIEWTABLE %8b.'%s'.DATA;COLNAMES
5 - do the exact same thing to the line which reads '(default)'
6 - (I'm not positive about this part, but you may need to type 'save' 
in the command box to cause the change to stick around)

Does anyone know how to change SAS's default file open in Windows. It always
starts in 'list' format when I prefer 'details' format sorted in reverse
date order.
