Abstract

One of the most powerful and dynamic feature of SAS language is Macro facility. The facility reduces the amount of effort required to read and write SAS code. Macro generates the SAS code automatically and enables one to acquire the skill set to become an efficient SAS programmer. The use of macro has prevailed over time and has deprecated the need to write repetitive codes. With the help of this feature one small change can be made to echo throughout the program in no time. Macro presents a uniform and easy approach for manipulation of data. In this research we explain the basic fundamentals of macro facility to generate data-driven programs .Also, how to create and use macro variables and save them for future aspects.
