Re: How to print userid.

Hello Ksharp,

Thanks for the reply.

if I use "&sysuserid" , it would create a column in dataset.

but I want to pass the value of it to another variable.

data ABC;

id = &sysuserid;

run;

I want that dataset ABC only has one column named ID and it contains the value of sysuerid. Could u please help me out ?

Thanks,

I don't understand what you mean exactly.

You can store its value in a dataset .Like:

data ABC;

id = "&sysuserid";

run;
