Basic Question!

When I try just displaying a simple character string, my LOG does not show the output. IS it due to some settings that I will have to change?

data _null_;
color = 'red orange green' ;
put "Before TRANWRD: " color;
run;

Thanks!

Re: Basic Question!

That's what I get running your code:

377 data _null_;
378 color = 'red orange green' ;
379 put "Before TRANWRD: " color;
380 run;

Before TRANWRD: red orange green
NOTE: DATA statement used (Total process time):
real time 0.01 seconds
cpu time 0.01 seconds


Question is:
How do you run your code (batch, PC SAS, EG)?
How does your log look like?

Re: Basic Question!

Thanks for your response! I ran the code today and it did give me the same o/p as urs which is correct. I just looged in today morning and it gave me the expected results. Could it be some settings?
I am running PC SAS. and this is how the log looks like.
6 data _null_;
7 color = 'red orange green' ;
8 put "Before TRANWRD: " color;
9 run;

Before TRANWRD: red orange green
