SAS Stored Processes: Where is my stored process code?

Submitted by on 2011-09-13 – 5:00 AM

As you register your stored process, you may notice that the Stored Process wizard incorporates your code in Step 2.  Ever wondered where the feisty little wizard places this code?

In step 3 of the creation process,  you are actually selecting a location and the file name.

  1. The Source filepath is the physical location for the SAS file.
  2. The Source filename defaults to the stored process name.  However, you can change the name.  For instance, some sites have file naming conventions to help find the files.
  3. After you have registered the stored process, you can edit the code from the physical location if you have access.

Stored Process Storage Location

If you have write access to this location, you can edit the code directly.  [Learn 3 ways to edit stored processes.] If you use SAS Management Console to register your stored process then you may already be used to doing it this way. It is also a way to search across all the programs if you are looking for a particular piece of code.
