Hi Myra,

Try the following to get the macro vars listed ...

data _null_; length mnam $8 mval $80; file print; put "MACRO VARIABLES" / "==============="; do mnam ="acount","ascore","smean1","smean2"; mval = symget(mnam); put mnam " = " mval; end; run;

Using a datastep gives a bit more control over the output.
