We are moving a large number of mainframe SAS programs to the UNIX
environment. The mainframe data steps often do not have a "run;"
statement at the end. Queries often do not have a "quit;" statement at
My question is: what standards are appropriate for adding Run;" and
"Quit;" statements? Obviously we do not want to spend considerable
time adding these statements when it is not necessary. Much of the
work will be done using SAS Enterprise Guide, and we went to make sure
the code runs efficiently and correctly.
