Macro reference

Hi

I've a macro variable created with

%let valqtr = 08q2;

I want to create a straight up variable referencing the macro value

example:

pstqtr = "&valqtr";

The result i intend to get is

pstqtr = 08q2

Please tell me how i can do that

it would have been helpful to know what you have tried....
In what context do you want to use this macro variable?
Would it be in a where clause, logic test, assignment statement, E.G., WRS, ....?

Have you tried
pstqtr = "&valqtr" ;

or

pstqtr = "%sysfunc( inputn(&valqtr, yyq4))";
