I am using SAS Client 9.2 and I wast to run a programme remotely (SAS Server 9.4).
I have a numbers of macros in the programme. I am planning on storing the SAS files which have the code in it on the server.
I am going to use the Client Session to only execute the programme. I will do this by using rsubmit.
This is the first time I am trying this and I was wondering if there are any considerations I should be aware off.
E.g. will there be poterntially issues with marcos not being resolved.
Many thanks all

This has always been a handy reference for me when working through issues with macros and remote submissions. It addresses most of the problems you may encounter and you'll learn a thing or two along the way.

I believe easiest would be to define the macros on the remote server in a location which is part of the SAS AUTOCALL facility. SAS(R) 9.2 Macro Language: Reference
You could also extend the Autocall macro search path by adding the storage location for your macros with syntax like: "options sasautos=(sasautos 'c:\mymacros');"
