The TRANS Procedure

Macro Variable _ORTRANS

On termination, the TRANS procedure defines a macro variable named _ORTRANS. This variable contains a character string that indicates the status of the procedure on termination and gives the objective value at termination. The form of the _ORTRANS character string is

           STATUS=xxx           OBJECTIVE=total-cost-of-the-solution

where xxx can be one of the following:

This information can be used when PROC TRANS is one step in a larger program that needs to identify how the TRANS procedure terminated. Because _ORTRANS is a standard SAS macro variable, it can be used in the ways that all macro variables can be used, (refer to the "SAS Guide to Macro Processing" ). One way to write the _ORTRANS variable to the log is illustrated in Example 6.1.
