I am trying to build a SAS report in HTML, where in have text boxes to get the data from the user and save it into a data set and then displayed the saved data from the dataset in another page.
for eg, if I am querying for a particular primary key field from the dataset, if that field exist, then should display all the row details into the corresponding textboxes wherein I have the option to edit.
put' var mobile = document.getElementById("mobile").value;';
to get the value of mobile number entered in html page to the global macro variable mobile.
But I am unable to perform the reverse.
assign the value of the macro variable into the html textbox element so that I can display the value on the frontend.
I am using the following code but not working yet
it displays &mobile in the textbox field.
if I use without the double quotes, sas throws an error that the variable mobile is not defined.
Kindly provide a resolution at the earliest.

SAS does not evaluate macro triggers inside of single quotes. Use double quotes instead. Embedded double quotes need to be doubled up.
put " document.getElementById(""mobile"").value=""&mobile"";" ;
