I guess the first question is: permanently or temporarily?
To temporarily change the WORK folder
you utilize the USER= option. e.g.
libname tmplib 'mytempfolder';
option user=tmplib; * redirect WORK datasets ;
option user=work; * put it back to the default ;
To permanently change where the session work folder
is you need to edit your config.sas or sasv#.cfg file
and look for -WORK for setting the base location.
Please note that each session will still generate a
unique session folder name at that location.
Hope this is helpful.

Subject: How to assign a different directory for the work folder
I want to change the directory of the work folder from the default
directory (/usr/tmp/SAS_workB91900004B5A_Evs01Sas03) to a new one. Is it
possible in SAS9.1.3. We work on SAS using the linux server platform.
