SAS Shortcuts

Clear log, output & submit code in one keystroke

  1. Activate your function keys by typing Keys in your command window.

2. Find a function that hasn’t been programmed yet.  I’ll pick F12.

3. Type in this command:

Clear Log; Clear Output; Submit;

 

 

Now run any program by hitting the F12 key or whichever key you used as your shortcut for this tip. See how it automatically clears your log, output windows and submits your SAS program all in one masterful keystroke! Needless to say you don’t have to use this programmed key when you want to see the log and output accumulated.
