Macro code Help

Hi,

I have this MAcro and I have two datasets passed to it as a trial

Looks like you are doing things a bit more complicated than needed.

Instead of passing a list of tables to the macro, just call the macro for each table. That will reduce the amount of logic within the macro, and therefore easier to maintain (and troubleshoot).

Linus,

I'm familiar with this application, and can promise you that this is just a test run.  There are actually more like 80 data sets to be processed.

K,

You will have to attach the log if you want any help from the forum.  That's what tells us what went wrong.  If you didn't have the MPRINT option in place, you may need to re-run with it before posting the log:

options MPRINT;

2 or 80, does that matter?

The effort to write the call is about the same, just repeating the macro name...?

Even better, having all contributing tables in a lookup table, or reading the names from sashelp.vmember, you could use call execute.

This page has code to create a list of data sets.

This macro can be used to call a macro for each row in a data set
