I feel a little dumb asking this question but I googled the syntax for it for a bit and can’t find it.  How can I add a carriage return to a let statement

Like

Let = “the cat ran carriage return carriage return to the town”;

For format agnostic delivery use ODS.

ods escapechar='~';

%let myString=the cat ran ~{NEWLINE 2} to the town;

ods text="&myString.";
