About this Class

Macros are ways to use code to substitute in a value, and using macros makes a code in SAS easier to read and edit, less prone to errors, and allows it to run more efficiently. This 90-minute advanced class will provide an in-depth look at using and writing macros in SAS. Topics covered in this class include macro function, using SQL and Data Step to create macro variables, indirect references to macro variables, defining and calling a macro, macro variable scope, conditional processing, and iterative processing.
