how to add my explanation to SAS editor?

Hi. I am trying to add my explanation in the editor window while I run SAS for statistical analysis for later reminder.

Is there a function like "%" to mute the command line that is not really used as SAS command in SAS?

 

Thanks in advance.

Re: how to add my explanation to SAS editor?

Are you looking for how to include comments in your code? If so, see the examples below as well as the reference here:

http://documentation.sas.com/?cdcId=pgmsascdc&cdcVersion=9.4_3.3&docsetId=lestmtsglobal&docsetTarget...

 

/*this is a comment block that needs an asterisk and slash to start and
end and can be multi line*/

*this is a comment, usually one line;

%*this is a comment in a macro;

proc means data=sashelp.class;
run;
