I support an old application that uses CLISTS & Panels to access SAS datasets & execute SAS programs (both interactively and by generating JCL for batch submission).
After converting the CLIST [that calls SAS interactively] to use SASv8 (vs SASv6.09), I no longer find the [report] output of the execution in the "SASLIST" dataset [that the CLIST allocates], but rather the output report "displays" directly to the monitor, and the dataset remains "empty".
Does this ring a bell with anyone???

If you are using the SAS supplied CLISTs for SASv6 and SASv8, I believe that they (SAS Institute) changed some of the defaults. This works on my SASv8 CLIST:
SASV8 PRINT('''saslist dsn''') LOG('''saslog dsn''') +
OPTIONS('PFKEY=ALT SYSIN=SASIN LOG=SASLOG')
You may not need LOG=SASLOG in options, I do it both ways, not sure why right now.
