This has nothing to do with macro SAS. The program is telling you that the path:
Does not exist.
This can mean you don't have a directory named that or SAS doesn't have access to it.
What software are you using, SAS UE version is mounted in a virtual image and you need to use Unix paths to certain areas to get data, you can't use local C drive.

1) There is no folder : C:\books\datasets - check again the exact path name.
2) if you define libname books '...' then refer to dataset should be
books.<data set name> and not book.<dataset name> (letter S is absent)

Instead book.ytdsales.I am using work.ytd slaes its working.When I run this code a library name book created but In SAS log file it says book doesnot exist.
This is because the path for your library book does not exist (in the scope of your SAS process, which might be on a remote server or in a virtual machine).
