Debugging a Macro Program

Once a macro program has been specified, the STATISTICA Visual Basic environment provides powerful methods for testing and debugging the program. You can set individual breakpoints in the program where you want the program to stop temporarily to allow you to look at the values of variables at that point (you can set and clear breakpoints by pressing F9 or clicking the Toggle breakpoint toolbar button). You can step through the program by using SHIFT+F8 or the Step over toolbar button.

 

Note that the variables in the Watch window (tab) not only can be observed, but they can also be changed interactively as the program is running.
