I have 35 excel workbooks with 22 sheets in each that I am trying to import into SAS 9.4 and then create a master dataset for each of the 22 sheets. I found this cool code to export an entire excel workbook in one go, and it's great. But I don't want to do it 35 times. I'm not familiar with macros and want to know if I can apply a do loop for this piece of code.
This is the code I'm using to import an entire workbook in one step and it works like a charm. Since all my 35 workbooks have the same sheet names I'm creating separate libraries to send the SAS datasets by sheet into, so that I can have them all available for merging late.
libname MyFiles XLSX '&path.\abc.xlsx'; libname XYZ '&path2.\XYZ'; proc copy in=MyFiles out=XYZ; run;quit; libname MyFiles;
/* this is the do loop I tried. Did not see any errors but not producing any results */
%let path = C:\HowToProcCopy;
%let sub_rec = A B C D E;
%let path2 = C:\HowToProcCopy\SAS Datasets;
%let sub_rec2 = M N O P Q;
%do i = &sub_rec;
%do j = &sub_rec2;
libname myfiles xlsx "&path\&i.xlsx";
libname &j "&path2\&j";
proc copy in = myfiles out = &j;
