Thanks RT -

Yes, "Options DETAILS" works in the program, autoexec, and config, as does the explorer options menu checkbox.

I want to edit the switch in the SAS DM registry. Anyone know how/where?

A few years ago I edited the switch to "on", but don't remember how I got to it. I'm guessing it was a DeVenezia or Crawford paper or post, but I can't locate it. I currently have the option turned off via my autoexec, but would like to simply have it "off". The checkbox switches it off during the session, but does not change in future sessions, even with "save settings on exit" turned on.

The problem is that the "details" option works okay with a small number of files, but we changed our data model and now have folders with several hundred files each. SAS Explorer takes a minute or two reading all the details whenever I click into a library, which is frequent. I'd like the DETAILS default in the registry back to "off".

Cheers RT
