I am here not to answer your question, but to present an alternative.
This is the method I use.
Libname temp "**path**" ; Options user=temp ;
With these two statements, I can use one-level data set names just like I
would if I were writing to the WORK library, but instead they go to the TEMP
library. (If I really do want to write to the WORK library, I will have to
specify WORK.WhatEver.) This allows me to look at any output data sets
after the job has run. Since this is just a substitute for the WORK
library, I can delete the data sets in the TEMP library at will. In fact, I
usually include the following code at the start of my batch jobs.
Proc datasets library=temp kill ;

Subject: PC SAS - work '/public'
Some experts here taught me to use "-work '/public'" to change work
directory with my UNIX SAS system. Now, I would like to ask how I can
change the work directory with my PC SAS system.
