a shortcut if you want it to handle outside of SAS, e.g. with UltraEdit:
mark one file with the extension .sas with one click in the explorer.
Press the <shift> key and right click on the marked file.
In the context menu you now find a point "open with ..." with the sub-
point "select program" (maybe "choose program" or something like that - I
have a german windows!). Select that, check the box with "always use that
program" and select the program you want, e.g. a editor.
