SAS studio macro's

Hi,

 

Some macro's are standard within SAS, for example the %logtest. However, within SAS studio that my company runs on a server build by SAS I cannot run these macro's. Is there a method to install these macro's or do you need to "activate" them first?

 

Thanks in advance,

Gavin

Re: SAS studio macro's

Many of the SAS supplied macros are dependent on the SAS products installed. If the macro is in a product not installed for you then that could be an issue. If you know which product the macro is supposed be associated with then you might run this code:

 

proc setinit;
run;

proc product_status;
run;

Setinit will tell which products are licensed and Product_status will tell which products were actually installed when you exam the Log. If the SAS product is in the Setinit results but not the Product_status then an update to your installation is in order. If not in Setinit then an expansion of the license is needed.

 

 

Sin %logtest is not installed in my fairly bare SAS installation I can't tell you which product to look for.

Re: SAS studio macro's

From what I found with my old friend google, %logtest is part of SAS/ETS.
