Example text

4 illustrates this process. 2. This program now contains one macro language statement and one macro variable reference. The %LET macro language statement assigns a value to a macro variable. The %LET statement tells the macro processor to store the macro variable name and its associated text in the macro symbol table. The macro variable is placed in the DATA step where the text associated with the macro variable should be substituted. The ampersand token followed by a name token is the instruction to the macro processor to look in the macro symbol table for the text associated with the macro variable whose name follows the ampersand.

The first PROC MEANS step runs daily. The second PROC MEANS step runs only on Fridays. The conditional macro language statements direct the macro processor to run the second PROC step only on Fridays. Assume the program was run on Friday, August 17, 2007. Macro language statements start with percent signs, and macro variable references start with ampersands. 5. 6: Iterative Processing of SAS Steps Coding each iteration of a programming process that contains multiple iterations is a lengthy task.

There are two types of macro variables: automatic macro variables and userdefined macro variables. Automatic macro variables are defined by SAS each time a SAS session is started, and they remain available for you to use throughout your SAS session. Most automatic macro variables contain information about your SAS session such as time of day that the session was invoked, version of SAS, and the operating system you’re using. Most automatic macro variable values remain constant throughout your SAS session and most cannot be modified by you.
