The SAS Log
Structure of the Log
The SAS log is a record of everything that you do in your SAS session or with your SAS
program. Original program statements are identified by line numbers. SAS messages are
interspersed with SAS statements. These messages might begin with the words NOTE,
INFO, WARNING, ERROR, or an error number, and they might refer to a SAS
statement by its line number in the log.
For example, in the following output, the number 1 is printed to the left of the OPTIONS
statement. This means that it is the first line in the program. In interactive mode, SAS
continues with the sequence of line numbering until you end your session. If you submit
the program again (or submit other programs in your current SAS session), the first
program line number is the next consecutive number.
Operating Environment Information
The SAS log appears differently depending on your operating environment. See the
SAS documentation for your operating environment.
