|Common Interface Features in SAS/ASSIST Software|
Depending on which SAS/ASSIST window you are in, you can use the Cancel, Goback, or OK buttons; Cancel or Close on the File menu; or the END function key to help you to back out of tasks in SAS/ASSIST software.
If you exit SAS/ASSIST software incorrectly, for example, if your computer "crashes," then the SASPARM table may become damaged. The SASPARM table is a SAS table, normally stored in the SASUSER library, which stores information about your SAS/ASSIST session, such as the active table and graphics options values. The next time you access SAS/ASSIST software, a message appears to indicate your SASPARM table has been damaged. To repair the SASPARM table, type Y and press ENTER. The table is repaired, and the SAS/ASSIST session begins.
