I compiled sas macros in SAS 9.3. but when I called them in 9.2, it does not work. however, if i compiled it in 9.2, I did not have any problem using them in 9.3.
It bothers me because I have to run some program in 9.2 and i have to re-compiled the macros. Does any one know how to fix it?
"You cannot move a stored compiled macro to another operating system or to a different release of SAS." it is quite true?

Why are you using compiled macros instead of just pointing to the source code using the SASAUTOS option?
This is very good questions. I took these macros from my supervisor, who is familar with compiled macros ( not sasautos). I need eveidences to convince him to make a change . but i am new to macros. -----how many advantages to use sasautos? ( point me the links, if you think the questions is too basic. thanks)

It is true.
You have no choice, must re-compile the macro.
