Macro Quoted String > 262 characters

If you have a SAS macro variable that is longer than 262 characters in length you will get a WARNING message such as the one shown below:

WARNING 32-169: The quoted string currently being processed has become more than 262 characters long. You may have unbalanced quotation marks.

The way to get around this limitation is to use the option named NOQUOTELENMAX as in
