SAS Tip of the Month
August 2005

When writing SAS code it is often useful to check the values that have been assigned to macro variables. A quick way to do this is to look at a SAS view called SASHELP.VMACRO.

From SAS version 8.2 and onwards it is possible to delete an assigned macro variable from the view by using the statement %SYMDEL.
