Hi Rodney,

Thank you very much for the reply. It is too bad if I can only submit
one line at a time, especially when having data lines in the program.
Can somebody confirm if I can submit multiple lines if using local
installed SAS? I have a windows version, and may try that if ess has
better support for that.
