sasCommunity Tip of the Day

The SAS V9 CALL SYMPUTX routine can save you keystrokes and lead to leaner, cleaner SAS programs. Instead of using:

call symput('MACROVAR',trim(left(charvar)));

to load a SAS macro variable with a character string that might contain blanks, you could use SYMPUTX instead:

call symputX('MACROVAR',charvar);
