ERROR: Open code statement recursion detected.

hi all,
because of some syntax mistake in %let statement i am getting this :
ERROR: Open code statement recursion detected.

after correcting and excuting, i am getting the same error.
even i am getting same error message if i executed any othermacro related code.
whenever i close that sas session and opens new, then only i am not getting any error.

y this is happening?
without closing the sas session, how can i overcome this problem?

Hi:
Search in this topic:

There's a code string you can submit over and over to try to get yourself out of the problem, but if it doesn't work, then your only choice is to close the SAS session.
