I am trying to run the below macro code and it gives an error.
I couldnt figure out the error. Could you please help me
create table NON_RESPONDERS_BULLET_7_P as
select t1.* from DSS_HRA_Healthfirst_Roster t1
where (t1.EFFECTIVE_DATE < intnx('year',today(),-1,'S') OR t1.EFFECTIVE_DATE > intnx('year',today(),-1,'E'))
and (t1.PRODUCT_PBP CONTAINS 'LIP1' OR t1.PRODUCT_PBP CONTAINS 'MAX1')
and ((t1.LAST_SURVEY_DATE1 BETWEEN intnx('year',&start3mnth,-15) and intnx('year',&end3month,-15))
%do i = -14 %to -2;
or (t1.LAST_SURVEY_DATE1 BETWEEN intnx('year',&start3mnth,&i) and intnx('year',&end3month,&i))
or (t1.LAST_SURVEY_DATE1 BETWEEN intnx('year',&start3mnth,&i) and intnx('year',&end3month,&i)));
ERROR 22-322: Syntax error, expecting one of the following: !, !!, &, *, **, +, ',', -, /, <,

Looking at a single line of code and what it would resolve to. This isn't valid SAS code.
and ((t1.LAST_SURVEY_DATE1 BETWEEN intnx('year',&start3mnth,-15) and
and ((t1.LAST_SURVEY_DATE1 BETWEEN intnx('year',01AUG2015,-15) and
You need to provide those as date literals to the macro
Change your code to allow your dates to resolve properly.

If you run the macro with the option mprint the error will appear in the log in a more useful location;
Without data or values for your macro variables Start3Mnt and End3Month it's a bit hard to be more precise though if either of those is blank that could be a cause.

What is it your trying to do. Post test data in the form of a datastep and what the output should look like. That block of code firstly doesn't need to be in a macro - all your seem to be doing is taking data where last_survey_date is between some set of months on 14 years to 2 years before. This is simple logic and doesn't need 14 "or" clauses generated for it. A simple datastep will also make life easier for you, but I can't post example code until you show your data and what its suppoed to look like.
