How to Backup and Restore Your Scripts

Updating your SAS Flex script is easy, but it's always a good idea to back up your work in case your computer crashes or your grandma calls and keeps you on the phone for 3 hours and you forget what you were working on. Backups of any scripts that have been updated will automatically show under the Archived Scripts tab under your main Scripts page. However, you can archive your own scripts as well! 

NOTE: The script archive task runs once a week on Saturday. If any changes were made to the script over the 7 day period, you'll see it in Archive and have a rollback point. So, if you adjusted your script on Tuesday, then again the Tuesday after, you would see 2 backup points.

In this article we'll discuss:
