Subject: sas macro libraries..
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=US-ASCII
Ok , I give up. I just don't get it. I understand Macros(to a point) I
understand macro libraries too.
What I'm trying to do is set up a macro library where I can 'call' my own
macros(namely : repetitive arrays,and several standard proc prints etc.
etc....whatever, you get my point...)
I'm working on the mainframe in a VM or TSO/MVS environment. so here are
1) What does my PDS library have to have in order for this to work in the
first place or can I just have it as a fixed block, lrecl of 80?
2) How do I get my SAS Code to recognize this library, so I can just call
3) Am I totally missing the boat with the 'CALL' statement and should I
try something else?
I would appreciate any coded examples, as I Learn better that way.
Just include a little narrative so I'm not totally lost.
You can reach me at Dheckcranford@worldnet.att.net over the weekend or
email@example.com any other time. Thanks again!
