SAS EG automacro

 

I cannot get the value of the following EG automacro, I am wondering the reason.

Thank you very much.

 

%put &_CLIENTPROJECTNAME;

 

However, I can get %put &_CLIENTUSERID .

Thank you very much, ART. I ran that part of code in EG program, which has already being saved to a server location. However, I could not get the program name and location through the automacro. I just switched to EG yesterday, still struggling ... Thank you.

Re: SAS EG automacro

_CLIENTPROJECTNAME will contain the name of the EG project file, so it will not be populated until you save the EG project (.egp file) somewhere and then re-run the code.

 

Or perhaps you are running into this...

 

Prior to EG 7.13 HF2, _SASPROGRAMFILE macro was only set when the program was stored on the server on which the program file was being executed (so the path would be valid in the context of the executing server).  Starting in EG 7.13 HF2, EG now sets the _SASPROGRAMFILE macro regardless of where the program file is located.  (_SASPROGRAMFILEHOST and _CLIENTPROJECTPATHHOST macros were also added to provide context for the paths in the corresponding macro variables.)
