It is also rather common to use call missing to create variables. This happens often when initializing a hash. Below is an example. -- chang_y_chung 22:43, 14 January 2011 (UTC)

data _null_;
  dcl hash h();
  h.defineKey('key');   /* errors without call missing below */
  h.defineData('data');
  h.defineDone();
  call missing(key, data);
run;

this would be good as a tip of it's own. --Don Henderson 22:48, 14 January 2011 (UTC)

  • but I would use a simpler example, one focusing on the CALL MISSING routine.--Howles 15:12, 22 January 2011 (UTC)
