I don't know of a way to get the actual programmer ID from the job step, but a possible workaround might be to pass it in using SYSPARM, like this:



Where it says "SSPRICE", you would change it to the programmer name from your job card. Kind of a hassle though, because you have to remember to change the SYSPARM value whenever the programmer in the job card changes. It would be nice if you could use a symbolic parameter from a JCL SET statement (at least that way you'd only have to change it in one place to change multiple steps in the job), but I tried it and couldn't get it to work.

In case I misunderstood and you were actually wanting the ID of the person who submitted the job (not necessarily the ID from the job step), you don't even have to use SYSPARM - just use &SYSUID in the SAS code (6.08, TS425 & later).
