John:

take a deep breath ...... ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

1) do kill the parens

2)"D:\SAS Institute\SAS\V8\sas.exe" jf100801.sas -work "J:\" ... works for me .... whereas ... "D:\SAS Institute\SAS\V8\sas.exe" jf100801.sas -work("J:\") ... does NOT

3) *If* the porgram name is NOT the 1st option on the command line, then preface it w/ the -SYSIN option, e.g.,

"D:\SAS Institute\SAS\V8\sas.exe" -work "J:\" -SYSIN jf100801.sas ... works ... whereas "D:\SAS Institute\SAS\V8\sas.exe" -work "J:\" jf100801.sas ... does NOT

HTH
