Uses for Stored Compiled DATA Step Programs

The primary use of stored compiled DATA step programs is for executing production jobs. The advantage of using these DATA step programs is that you can execute them as needed without investing the resources required for repeated compilation. The savings are especially significant if the DATA step contains many statements. If you install a new version of SAS, you do not need to recompile your source code.
