The other day, in response to a Forum post, I created a small macro/abbreviation. Then I realized that I didn't know where I could post the
KMF file so that others could import it
So, as a result, I created a sasCommunity.org page which, hopefully, will soon be home to many of the SAS macro/abrreviation kmf files that people will
share. The page is: http://www.sascommunity.org/wiki/Abbreviations/Macros
If you have a collection of one or more SAS macro/abbreviation(s), please post them to that page.
Thanks in advance,
p.s. If you're not familiar with posting to a wiki page, feel free to send me ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) your kmf files, and I'd be glad to post them for you. Also, if you know of anyone else who has a collection of kmf files, please let them know about this project.

FriedEgg, One doesn't have to use SAS interactively (other than using the enhanced editor) in order to take advantage of SAS Macro/Abbreviations. Their primary utility for me has always been to bring up all possible options for a proc after entering 3 or 4 characters in my code.
E.g, if I type impe, followed by entering a tab character, when I want to import an Excel file, I get the entire proc import code for importing an Excel file. That, for me, has been the principal benefit of SAS Macros/Abbreviations. However, the project is designed not only to provide what I want, but to provide a library of everything that people have found useful about SAS Macros/Abbreviations.
