Chapter 11: Creating and Using Macro Programs

  1. Correct answer: b
    A macro definition must begin with a %MACRO statement and must end with a %MEND statement. The macro definition can include macro language statements as well as SAS language statements. When the macro is compiled, macro language statements are checked for syntax errors. The compiled macro is stored in a temporary SAS catalog by default.
  2. Correct answer: c
    To include positional parameters in a macro definition, you list the parameters in parentheses and separate them with commas. When the macro is executed, macro variables will be created in the local symbol table and will have the same names as the parameters. You can then use these macro variables within the macro.
