Hi, I have the following code in which a file is open in write mode.
filename write "&batchfiledir\&batchname.sas"; data _null_; file write; set _BatchfileData_ end=eof; length incstmnt $ 1000; if _n_=1 and lengthn(trim("&desc"))>0 then put '/* Batch description: ' "&desc" ' */' /; incstmnt=cats("&tmpprotpath\", files); info=symget("mapunixdir_info"); getunixdir=strip(scan(info,1,":")); getwindir=strip(scan(info,2,":")); incstmnt=tranwrd(incstmnt ,trim(getwindir),trim(getunixdir)); incstmnt=translate(incstmnt,'/','\'); incstmnt=catt('%include "', incstmnt , '";' ); put incstmnt ; run;
I am getting I/O error since this file is open in write mode and is not closed. Please suggest on ways to close this file.

filename write clear;
after run-statement should solve the issue.
You may want to add another period in your first filename-statement to create a properly named file:
filename write "&batchfiledir\&batchname..sas";
The first period is the separator between macro variable an following text and automatically ommitted.

When you receive an error it is very helpfule to post the log and the entire text of the error message.
By any chance do you have any calls to the FOPEN function in your program elsewhere from the code you posted?
