Stops execution of a script immediately and signals an error condition.




The ABORT statement immediately stops execution of a script and terminates the SIGNON or the SIGNOFF function. ABORT prevents other script statements from executing when the communication link has not been established successfully. When it executes, the ABORT statement signals an error condition, and an error message is issued and displayed in the SAS Log window. To terminate execution of a script under normal conditions, use the STOP statement.
