Viewing the Values of All Current Macro Variables
When developing or debugging a SAS application, it is often useful to check the values that have been assigned to Macro variables.
The easiest way to do this is to simply use the following command:
This will list the current value of every macro variable within the SAS log.
In addition to _ALL_ you could use any of the following:
- _USER_ to list only user defined macro variables;
- _AUTOMATIC_ to list those defined by the SAS system;
- _GLOBAL_ to list all session wide macro variables (global symbol table);
- _LOCAL_ to list those macro variables local to the executing macro.
