Abstract

Are you just learning to write MACROS? Are you baffled by when to use single quotes and double quotes - or one inside the other? Are you confused by when to use statements such as DO versus %DO? Want to know the difference between a GLOBAL and LOCAL Macro variable? Do you have macros that don't give the right results yet don't give error messages either? This workshop will introduce a few MACRO concepts that are often misunderstood. You'll also learn how to use options such as MPRINT and SYMBOLGEN, and statements such as %PUT, to help you determine why your macro doesn't run, or why it does run but gives you the wrong results.
