Title The New World of SAS®: Programming with SAS® Enterprise Guide®
Speaker(s) Stephen McDaniel, SAS Institute Inc.
Section SAS Presents
Skill Level Intermediate general SAS user
Abstract SAS® Enterprise Guide® has provided major productivity enhancement
to SAS® users, especially non-programmers. SAS Enterprise Guide provides
some powerful new features that are geared toward the SAS programmer,
including an integrated process-flow view of your project; the ability to
create, publish, and execute stored processes; integration with SAS
metadata; and an increased flexibility for output format and destination
with the SAS Output Delivery System (ODS).
This presentation provides an overview and detailed examples of how SAS
programmers can leverage SAS Enterprise Guide to create, organize, and
execute their SAS programs. An external SAS expert will present several
examples of their usage of the product with various customers.

The abstract reads:
SAS Enterprise Guide 4.1 provides a ton of tasks to tickle travels into

when our fancy is not tickled just as it should be. Perhaps you need a

This seminar will show you how to create custom tasks for use in SAS
Enterprise Guide and the add-in for Microsoft Office using C# .NET. It
will guide you through the tools you need to get started and then dive
right into the programming. You do not need to know much about SAS
Enterprise Guide or the add-in for Microsoft Office; however, you should
have at least a rudimentary knowledge of object-oriented languages,
preferably Microsoft's C#.

My experience is with EG3.
The situation with EG is that the SAS code is submitted to a SAS server
or process outside of EG, which has no 'display'. Thus no SAS windowing
statements (WINDOW, %WINDOW, Proc DISPLAY a frame) can be executed by
the server. Windows are needed for prompts... therein lies a problem.
A custom EG add-in node could be coded in MS Visual.Net, and that node
could interact with the server and render dialogs based on whatever is
going on on the server side. This is the only way I know how to add
dynamic prompting to a Process flow.
A process flow can have a query node with selectable parameters,
however, the parameter values available for selection can not be
dynamically set at process flow runtime -- only at process flow design
Things may have improved in EG4.
It would be nice if EG (client) had built-in X-Windows and the SAS
server could be allowed to render things back at the client.
