How to make a User Written transformation print to the &_output dat set?

I've created a User Written transformation in DI Studio. It successfully makes changes to the input data set. However, I'm not able to make it write the data to the output data set (the work table in the transformation's output port). I know I can use &_output to reference it, but what kind of proc step do I use? Proc print didn't seem to know that it should print to &_output.

Thanks for your time.

Your user written code should look like:

data &_output;

     set &_input;

.....

run;

Proc Print is NOT writing to a SAS table but creates a report (so a .lst file most likely written to the current OS folder or to whatever is defined as -print destination in your .cfg file used to start your session).

I'm not sure about what you are trying to do.

Were you to output data before you made the changes to the input data?

have you updated the output table metadata?

Pls share your code for a more spot on help...
