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.
