Sas Macro

Hey,
I can't figure the difference between these two functions:
%BQUOTE and %NRBQUOTE.
In the book they said the later can in addtion mask & and % But I used the former with no error using SAS Version 9.1
options symbolgen;
%let text=%BQUOTE(Joan's & % Report);
%put &text;
%let text=%nrbquote(Joan's & Report);
%put &text;
N/A

I suspect you might not get an error because the & is on it's own. See what happens if you do

%let text=%nrbquote(Joan's &Report);

I assume, but I'm not sure, it will tell you the macro variable &report is not resolved.

Let me know.

Cheers
Peter
