There has been an internal request to develop a repository of SAS macros.
The idea is that when creating TFLs (Tables, Listings and Figures) for clients a lot of macros are re-utilized time and time again. Generally we work by double programming (i.e. one to write the code that will be used and another individual who writes a second program in parallel in order to verify that both achieve the same results).
It was envisaged that the macros which are most frequently used be placed in a secure (read-only) repository and validated. In this way both programmers (the coder of the program that will be used and the programmer of the QC program) would be able to use a common repository of pre-validated ‘generic’ SAS macros.
I suppose my main questions would be:
