METALIB Procedure

PREFIX Statement

Specifies a text string to add to the beginning of all new metadata object names.
See: Adding a Prefix to New Metadata Names


PREFIX <=> <">text<">;

Required Argument

is the text string to add. If you do not enclose the text string in quotation marks, the text string is converted to uppercase. If the text string includes special or mixed-case characters, you must enclose the text string in quotation marks. The text string is added to the beginning of the value of the Name= attribute. This modification does not affect PROC METALIB processing because the procedure uses the value of the SASTableName= attribute to compare the metadata to the tables in the data source.
