Proc SQL Pass Through Facility

%let table_no=EMP_HIST;


proc sql;
connect to oleDB as passThru
(properties=('Integrated Security'=SSPI 'Persist Security Info'=TRUE 'Initial Catalog'=DBDWH_EMP)
provider=SQLOLEDB PROMPT=NO DATASOURCE='DWH-I-SQL.DWHNET\DB01 schema=DWHDS);
create table work.temp_views as select
*
from connection to passThru (
SELECT
s.name as schema_name
,v.name as view_name
FROM sys.views v
,sys.schemas s
WHERE v.schema_id=s.schema_id
AND s.name like 'dwh'
AND v.name ="&table_no"
ORDER BY 1,2
);

disconnect from passThru;
quit;

This is just a guess but some databases don't like double quotes so try this:

 

AND v.name = %str(%')&table_no%str(%')

If that gives you trouble, apply %unquote:

 

AND v.name = %unquote(%str(%')&table_no%str(%'))
