VIM? Ugh. You're not stuck with Lotus Notes or GroupWise, are you?
Since this worked before, and it works if you set everything in the
FILENAME statement, I'm going to guess that you have an intermediary
SAS 9 config file which has wrong settings in it, and this is
re-setting things after the SASV9.CFG file has run.
Try running your program with the -verbose setting on, so that
you can see the list of all the config files, and you can check each
of them for incipient badness. If you want to alter your icon
description, do it like this:
"C:\Program Files\SAS\SAS 9.1\SAS.exe" -verbose
so the -verbose option gets added.
Ron Fehd has written many times in SAS-L about SAS config files, so
you can go to the SAS-L archives and look up some of his posts for
