I know that automatic variables are dropped at the end of the data step. Is there a way to see it though? Thanks!

Write to the log using put/putlog or assign the value to a new variable

Astounding
PROC Star

A few ways.

 

You can add a PUT statement within the DATA step:

 

put first.state;

 

Or you can copy the variable to a different DATA step variable:

 

auto1 = first.state;

auto2 = last.state;

auto3 = eof;

auto4 = _n_;

 

Then you will have this new set of variables available in the output data set.

 

If you ask a more specific questions, you can get a more specific answer.

Not that "%put _AUTOMATIC_;" gives the values of automatic *macro* variables.

You can use
put _ALL_;
to print the values of all variables, including automatic variables, available in your data step.
