SAS macro variable inspector: a custom task

I thought this group might appreciate this tool I've built for use in SAS Enterprise Guide 4.3:

If you're a programmer who uses macro variables, you might find this custom task useful.  If you have feedback, I'd love to hear from you on the blog.

Re: SAS macro variable inspector: a custom task

Hi Chris,

This tools doesn't seem to work in 5.1.

Is this tool incompatible or am I doing something wrong?

Re: SAS macro variable inspector: a custom task

Nick, I've tested it in 5.1 and had no problem.  And I know that others here at SAS have used it as well.

Does the task show up in the menu when you put the DLL in %appdata%\SAS\EnterpriseGuide\5.1\Custom ?

If you continue to have problems, open a tech support track.  This particular task won't be supported officially, but if you're having trouble we should get to the bottom of it.  So if you open a track, mention this thread and my name to make sure that I get pulled into the loop, and we'll figure it out.
