I am trying to create an automated time staamp. This is what I have so far:
%LET TIME = %SYSFUNC(TIME() );
But this isn't giving me what I need. I need 9 digits with no "." in it, for example HHMMSSSSS. Does anyone know how to do that?

Q1 as normal, why does it need to be a macro? Macro language is a text generation tool, it has no data structures or means to process data. Base SAS is there to hold data and process it. For instance, datastep has a function time(), which can be put into any format, and if need you can strip out any characters you need. Simple.
