as already provided %Put _ALL_;%*more than you wanted to know: includes SYS*; same as: %Put _automatic_;

%Put _user_;%*user-defined macro variables; same as: %Put _global_;

within a macro: %macro x(y=1); %Put _local_; %Mend;

SAShelp.vMacro and Dictionary.Macro contain the SYS* macro variables in sorted order but the user-defined mVars are in some automagically determined order which doesn't relate to being alphabetized.

PROC Print data = SAShelp.vmacro;%*contains _ALL_;

PROC Print data = SAShelp.vmacro (where = (Scope eq 'GLOBAL');

PROC SQL;select * from Dictionary.Macros;quit;


PROC SQL;select Name ,Value from Dictionary.Macros where Scope eq 'GLOBAL' order by Name ;quit;

see macro Put_User

RTFM: I'm an engineer, I don't get paid to know, I get paid to know which Dictionary.Table it is in
