Simple Audit Trail

I would like to audit existing sas programs in our organisation that are currently run as part of a batch SAS file.

These programs have various External Input files, and additional dependencies (work datasets, variables etc) that are created during each run. Is is possible to output a log file that shows for the current running program all the inputs (external files datesets etc) , and ouput files without going through each program individually and analysing?

It could be useful then to build this into a run so that each time a batch job is run a quick audit of the files that were used could be incorporated, with an error for each file that is missing or not in the required format.

Many thanks

Not sure on how you wish to use this, but maybe could the SAS code analyzer help you?
