    In this book, Burlew does a superb job of explaining to the book's readers, via figures and various examples, the mechanisms of the SAS macro facility, such as how SAS statements are transferred from the input stack to the macro processor and the DATA step compiler, what role the macro processor plays during the process, and how to utilize the interface between the macro facility and the SAS language. This is a step by step guide and you will soon be able to perform rapidly programming tasks, and pass info between the steps involved in the programming as well as enhancing code readability. If you are not familiar with keyword parameters, the explanation in chapter 4 is invaluable. While not required unless you follow a macro variable reference with text, all macro variable references can be terminated with periods.

They are typically used to supply different varaibels to the same SAS statements sl that they can process different observations of a data set.

Burlew M. SAS Macro Programming Made Easy

New topics for the second edition include using SAS 9 macro and SAS language features, debugging macro programs, adding error checking to macro programs, and building a library of utility macro programs. It is used for data manipulation such as filtering data, selecting, renaming or removing columns, reshaping data etc.

It can make your work faster by automating the task that requires writing same lines of code every day. This lack of understanding hinders novice programmers in developing a more flexible and advanced macro application. It can also be used when you design a complex algorithm and want to make usage of code user friendly so that people who are not comfortable with programming can use your algorithm.

Macro variables These are the variables which hold a value to be used again and again by a SAS program. We will get the below result. More experienced macro programmers will find this book useful to refresh their conceptual knowledge and expand on their macro programming skills.

This book was easy to follow and provides an excellent reference for macro programmers. SAS Macro Programming Made Easy book me, and most of the SAS programmers I know, programming examples, followed by detailed explanations, are the best way to teach programming concepts. Syntax The local variables are decalred with below syntax.

They can be Global or Local in scope. Stable Software more important than cost of software license : All the functions and procedures of previous software version are supported in new SAS versions.

When placing text before a macro variable reference or when combining macro variable references, you do not have to separate the references and text with a delimiter. The character value can include variable-name, letters, numbers or any text you want substituted in your program.

Now the macro variable references resolve as desired, and the text that follows the references is concatenated to the results of the resolution. Michele's friendly style is especially good for programmers who might be fearful of macro programming like me!

In general they are the system assigned variables which are accessed by multiple programs. Syntax The local variables are declared with below syntax. Consider a scenario to print the system date in the title of the SAS report every day the report is generated.

It is also important to note that the macro facility is a highly popular part of SAS and found in the job requirements for many SAS programming jobs. It's generally said smart programming reduce workload and helps to win over your boss.
