Options Statement

Contents Index


The options statement is used to change the default values of SAS system parameters. The options statement should NOT appear inside a data step or a proc step. Example:

options 
	pagesize=60
	linesize=80
	pageno=1
	nodate
	nocenter;

The nodate option suppresses printing of the date and time information on each page of the output; the date option restores the default behavior.

The nocenter option produces left justified output; the center option restores the default centering of output.

The options statement usually appears in the autoexec.sas file, but can be typed in the program editor window.
