It is very common to run a group of SAS programs together in batch mode. For example, often one runs a large number of individual SAS programs to generate listings and tables for a clinical trial. These programs are submitted to run together in a batch job. There are different ways to create the batch program. For instance, a shell script for a UNIX system can be created to do it on the server side (SUGI 145-31), or a .BAT file for Windows OS can fulfill this task on a specific PC (SUGI 105-27).
