SAS listing output contains date and time stamps at the top of each output page. However, the associated SAS logs do not. You can however add a date time stamp to the LOG using a couple of different methods.

* DATA Step;
data _null_;  
    datetime = datetime();
    put datetime= datetime18.;
run;

Or you can use the macro language.

%put Job Started Execution at %sysfunc(time(),timeampm.) on %sysfunc(date(),worddate.).;
