What is the syntax for printing a variable in a SAS program? I know how to do this in a stored process but looking for the syntax for a program.

 

data enrollment; set enrollment;
length yearToNull $4.;
if(substr(max_academic_period, 5, 2) ne '30') then do;
yearToNull = substr(max_academic_period, 1, 4);
/*put yearToNull;*/
if(substr(academic_period, 1,4) = yeartoNull) then Annual_FTE = 0;
end;
run;

What you have done, the "put yeartonull;" should work?

data _null_;
  set sashelp.cars;
  put make;
run;

Do you want to print it to the log or to the Results Viewer?

Thank RW9, apparently I was running into another condition that was making my put statement not show up, and thought I had the syntax for the basic put statement wrong.
