I have just switched from SAS DM to SAS EG.
One feature of EG is Auto-completion,including user-defined macro. But it only restricted to macro defined through the active program. The question is I have hundreds of defined macros, each macro is defined in a separated sas file. I have tried to use MAUTOSOURCE , and the Auto-completion doesn't work then. I also tried INCLUDE AND FILENAME STATEMENT, it doesn't work either.
So, any suggestion on how to make EG Auto-completes hundreds of user-defined macros?
Any suggestion will be highly appreciated .

Perhaps editor abbreviations, which might be what you meant by "keyboard macro".

You got exact what I mean.
Editor abbreviations is a kind of choice, but may not the best choice, Since Macro I defined may have lots of positional parameters. Auto-completion can also give some hints of what these parameters means when I 'm typing in EG, but Editor abbreviations will not.
Macro Auto-completion can only be done in the some code node in EG. If EG can do this in different code nodes, that would be better.
