This page provides links to papers and example files so you can get started with SAS abbreviations, which can reduce repetitive typing and remind you of your favorite syntax.
SAS abbreviations are macros that you can create with the SAS Enhanced Editor in the Windows operating environment. You can define a character string so that when you type it and then press the TAB key or the ENTER key, the string expands to a longer character string. You can share abbreviations with others by exporting and importing them as a KMF file.
