Tips:Adding a date and time stamp message to the SAS Log
As part of the decommissioning effort for sasCommunity.org this article/tip has been migrated to communities.sas.com.
The new home for this article/tip is Adding a date and time stamp message to the SAS Log (https://communities.sas.com/t5/SAS-Tips-from-the-Community/SAS-Tip-Adding-a-date-and-time-stamp-message-to-the-SAS-Log/m-p/475840#M180)
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.).;
