OPTLOAD Procedure

Overview: OPTLOAD Procedure

The OPTLOAD procedure reads SAS system option settings that are stored in the SAS registry or a SAS data set and puts them into effect.
You can load SAS system option settings from a SAS data set or registry key by using one of these methods:
  • the DMOPTLOAD command from a command line in the SAS windowing environment. For example, DMOPTLOAD key= “core\options”.
  • the PROC OPTLOAD statement.
When an option is restricted by the site administrator, and the option value that is being set by PROC OPTLOAD differs from the option value that was established by the site administrator, SAS issues a warning message to the log.
